Rigathi On Raila: Food On The Table And Economic Addressing Is What People Want To Hear, Not History

The 20th of October each year in Kenya marks not only a remarkable and commemorable moment for Kenyans past heroes, but also today's current, energetic, enthusiastic and hardworking individuals who constantly fight to ensure attainment of objectives and record breakings in various fields.

It was a colourful moment occasioned by great performance across all ages. Speeches were made and when it was turn for the Right Honourable, he said the following.

'Baba' first recognised retired president Kibaki as his hero. He said he did a lot interms of education, employment and agriculture, in general, there was a constant growth economic index yearly, thus a big achievement.

Former Roads Minister didn't forget to mention the tragic road accident that reduced and confined Mwai to a wheelchair making him unable to campaign. The ODM leader says that he traversed significant distances across 'Kikuyu lands' carrying the name tag 'Kibaki Tosha', to an extent that he was given the name, 'Raila jamba'.

Today morning, Mathira member of parliament, Gachagua, had a key point to the ODM boss. He said the following.

"Raila is actually good in bringing history before us, reminding the nation what they didn't know, but the major shortcoming is that these youths were not there, they don't want stories, they want to hear how well will you ensure that they have something on the table, the economy. He is filling people with past history of how he helped Kibaki thinking that the people will give back his kind gesture he portrayed. What you did with Kibaki remained with him, economy is what matters now, what do you have?"
