ODM leader Raila Odinga on Saturday took his campaign to Nyandarua county to mobilise support for his 2022 presidential bid.
He began the tour at Soko Mjinga Flyover.
Addressing residents, he took a hit at Deputy President William Ruto, asking the crowd if they wanted to push wheelbarrows.
"Unataka kusukuma wheelbarrow? (do you want to push wheelbarrows?)" he said.
The wheelbarrow is associated with Ruto's UDA.
Raila is accompanied in Nyandarua by a host of Mt Kenya leaders among them governors, MPs, senators as well as grassroots leaders.
They include Lee Kinyanjui (Nakuru), Francis Kimemia (Nyandarua), James Nyoro (Kiambu) and Ndiritu Mureithi (Laikipia).
Key President Uhuru Kenyatta’s allies in Mt Kenya including former Presidential candidate Peter Kenneth, MPs Maina Kamanda (Nominated), and Kanini Kega (Kieni) are also expected to accompany him.
Several artists from the region including Ben Githae, Sarafina Salim, and Jose Gatutura will perform during the tour.
On Saturday, Raila defended his pledge to allocate unemployed youths Sh6,000 monthly.
"Those who ask where the money will come from... I know where the money is," he said.
