Raila Odinga, Kenyan Prime Minister, has started mobilising support for Prezzo, his country’s representative in the BigBrother Africa Stargame.
This was made known in Odinga's tweet on Monday, in which he urged his countrymen and women to “come together in large number and vote” Prezzo. The 32-year-old musician is one of the six contestants remaining in the competition.
The prime minister said he had already sent his vote to the number provided by the organisers for voting. To encourage his compatriots to help Prezzo win the competition, Odinga posted a picture of himself voting for the BigBrother house mate on his BlackBerry device.
His party, the Orange Democratic Movement, also joined in the Twitter campaign.
