IEBC chairman Wafula Chebukati announced that election in Kisumu, Siaya, Migori and Homa Bay counties would be held on Saturday, October 28.

Counteracting IEBC's directive,Raila Odinga in an interview with a local radio station asked his supporters to stay away from the repeat poll in parts of Nyanza. Raila told his supporters that there is no need for protests.

The opposition leader also picked an issue with IEBC who he accused of ethnic profiling.Raila asked the electoral commission to contend with zero votes since no voting took place in more areas.

''Repeating poll in 4 Luo Nyanza counties is ethnic profiling, no voting took place in many more areas, contend with zero vote.''Raila said.
