Supporters of Kenyan opposition leader Raila Amolo Odinga stand in the sun wearing baseball caps in the party color orange and his initials written on, as they await his arrival at a rally in Uhuru Park in Nairobi, Kenya Wednesday, Oct. 25, 2017. Odinga urged his supporters to boycott a rerun of the country’s disputed presidential election scheduled for Thursday amid rising political tensions and fears of violence, and called on his political coalition to become a “resistance movement”.
