Governor Ongwae had given his speech and was required to invite Deputy President William Ruto who was to make brief remarks and then invite President Uhuru to deliver his speech BUT instead governor Ongwae invited Raila Odinga to give his remarks.
In his classic self, the former premier begun by making a brief historical reference linked to the host county, he acknowledged famous Gusii icons who have never been recognized including dynasties like George Morara and George Anyona Moseti

Raila went on to remind his listeners that Kisii County was first to host a BBI rally.
Noting that the rallies were scheduled to resume, the ODM party leader concluded his sppech with his resounding call, “Nobody Can Stop Reggae”.
Our healthcare workers have discharged their duties bravely as we fight the Covid 19 pandemic and we hail them for their patriotism. Let us all strive together with the singular aim of making Kenya a better place for all. Happy Mashujaa Day! pic.twitter.com/hn9ZJfsj0u
