Opposition chief Raila Odinga has faced opposition from a section of Muhoroni residents who are opposed to his scheme of constructing an industrial park in the area.
Trouble started when the former premier asked locals to provide for the construction of the park on their land claiming it was more important and profitable than practicing small scale farming.
Raila toured the region on Monday, May 13, morning, to vouch for the project only to face rowdy resistance youth carrying placards accusing him of colluding with the government to take their land away.
The incident aroused the security team to step in and calm the situation living the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) leader in dilemma and embarrassed.
“Why are you embarrassing me? I am bringing development yet you are not keen on the projects that will benefit you,” questioned Raila
The park will occupy 500 acres, and the construction work is set to start in August.
President Uhuru Kenyatta, his Ugandan equivalent Yoweri Museveni are among the guests expected to launch the building process.
Raila was accompanied by Cabinet secretaries Peter Munya (Trade and Industrialisation), James Macharia (Transport) and John Munyes (Mining).
