I just want to wish everyone safe and comfortable flights into Nairobi today. All is quiet with no occurrences visible on the Uchaguzi site. Tomorrow orientation will take place at Upper Hills campsite and volunteers will move to their hosts the same day.

August 4 has now been declared a National holiday to allow everyone to vote in the Referendum. PM Raila Odinga will be in Kisumu for a “Yes” rally Saturday and President Kibaki at Uhuru Park’s “Yes” rally on Monday 2 August.

Wishing everyone Peaceful times, and especially for our volunteers; a quiet comfortable stay at Upper Hills and good journey onward to your hosts.
