The former Prime Minister made several pledges to Kenyans from the East side of Mt Kenya region which got them excited.
One of the pledges the ODM team made is that they will open markets within Kenya and neighboring countries for the sale of Miraa, the cash crop from Meru that has recently had a downfall sale.
"PL @RailaOdinga pledges to negotiate for the sale miraa in foreign countries including the DRC." The ODM report stated.
Mombasa County Governor Ali Hassan Joho also stated that miraa can be sold freely in Mombasa which elated several reactions from Kenyans.
Take a look at some of the reactions:
Prince Tittoh: " Let him do it now that he is in government. Since 2018 March, he should have done this and made us live reality!"
Elgi: "Miraa owner should wait until Raila becomes president."
