Donning green T-shirts and waving portraits of prime minister Raila Odinga and president Kibaki, the residents criss-crossed the town chanting songs in praise of the PM. Led by boda boda operators the youths interrupted free flow of traffic on the town’s major streets for the better part of the evening. The celebrations are expected to go on deep into the night.
