An Orange Democratic Movement lobby group in the North Rift region has called for violence-free campaigns.
Friends of Raila national chairman Micah Kigen asked presidential hopefuls to use the campaigns to preach peace.
“Parties should be free to sell their policies in all parts of the country without any intimidation,” said Mr Kigen during the launch of FoRa in Elgeyo-Marakwet County.
At the same time a group of youths in the region has endorsed Industrialisation minister Henry Kosgey as Mr Odinga’s running mate in the next poll.
The youth said the Tinderet MP had remained steadfast in popularising ODM policies and that he was capable of delivering the Rift Valley votes to the party.
Roads minister Franklin Bett has also declared interest to be the Prime Minister’s running mate, arguing that the North Rift had been allocated enough political positions. (READ: Kosgey: I am best suited to be Raila’s running mate)
The Bureti MP termed the move to endorse Mr Kosgey as a scheme to sideline communities from the South Rift.
