Kenya's opposition coalition, Nasa, on Friday urged supporters to donate money to its election campaign for next month's presidential vote re-run in which its candidate Raila Odinga will bid for power once again.

Observers say the plea means the Nasa coalition's coffers are probably depleted after the initial vote in August which was annulled by the Supreme Court, leading to a new election due on October 17.

President Uhuru Kenyatta, who had been declared winner of the August election, has meanwhile resumed election rallies alongside his allies in several regions across Kenya.

"The elections must be held by next month and because of this we are appealing to all our supporters across the country to participate in these elections by making financial contributions to the campaign," Odinga told a news conference in Nairobi.
