Many in Eldoret were startled when Azimio deputy presidential candidate Martha Karua abandoned her vehicles and walked through the streets looking for votes.
Karua walked over three kilometers, waving to locals and encouraging them to vote for Azimio on August 9.
She was flanked by Azimio leaders including nominated MP Maina Kamanda.
Most politicians campaign from the top of their cars, but Karua chose to walk through the streets, breaking with custom.
On her approach to a rally at Huruma grounds, she spoke to citizens at the Eldoret main market.
Karua had previously attended a church service at the Ayub Kinyua PCEA church in Eldoret ahead of the campaigns.
Karua was greeted enthusiastically at the church, where she asked religious leaders to pray for the country ahead of the elections.
Karua is visiting the region for the first time since being named as Raila Odinga’s running mate in the presidential election.
Although the region is the home county of Deputy President William Ruto and is seen as a bastion, Azimo’s support is concentrated in Eldoret.
