A new metallic stage has, however, been built ahead of the Nasa chief’s rally.

Supporters of the two leading political factions clashed at Laare, with stones hurled by either side toward the opposing camps.

Bonfires were lit at the rally venue in Laare, with supporters of Jubilee Party blocking an entry point that Odinga will use to access the venue.

The Jubilee Party supporters also vowed to block Odinga’s convoy from accessing the venue.

Odinga, nonetheless, is expected to address the rally.
