The former Prime Minister and the Azimio la Umoja One Kenya coalition presidential candidate, Raila Odinga made his last words to Nyanza residents urging them to support his presidential bid in the coming general elections.
He addressed the residents during a rally at Jomo Kenyatta International Stadium in Kisumu.
The Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) leader is now running for the presidential seat for the fifth time.
Nyanza region which consists up to six counties; Kisii, Nyamira, Kisumu, Siaya, Migori and Homabay contains a large enough population which can enable Raila to presidency if the residents turn out in large numbers.
Together with Marth Karua, who is his running mate, said that their government will be the best after the exist of the President Uhuru led government.
He urged the residents to mobilize their friends and neighbours to turn out in large numbers and elect his government in the upcoming general election.
He said that the last general election brought division. “This brought about tension in the country as my supporters agitated for the division of the country into two, a move that saw ethnic tension between Kikuyus and the Luos, among other communities.”
For the purpose of peace across the nation, they made a handshake with the President.
“This calmed the country and ensured initiation of development projects across the country,” he said.
On the other hand, the Azimio presidential candidate never left out the ongoing disagreement between the President Uhuru and his Deputy President William Ruto. Raila warned Ruto against attacking the President.
Ruto is the Kenya Kwanza Presidential flag bearer, running for presidential seat for the first time.
“Now that President Kenyatta is going home, he should be left alone to retire in peace. If you have a problem then you should face me and Martha Karua squarely.
“Ruto is now panicking and blaming everyone, including Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i, Principal Secretary Karanja Kibicho, chiefs and assistant chiefs.” The ODM leader claimed.
Raila ended up directing the residents to carry along the sick, the youth and not forgetting the disabled to ensure that they practice their democratic right.
