The ODM leader will then meet close to 1000 youth from six constituencies.
He will then wrap up the day with a dinner session where he will meet with professionals and business people at the Nyeri Golf Club from 6pm to 10pm.
On Saturday, he is expected to meet various Mt. Kenya delegates at Ruring'u stadium before embarking on rallies and stopovers in Nyeri town, Othaya, Mukurweini and Karatina.
