Kenyans React To Jimmy Wanjigi's Comments on Raila's 6,000 Stipend Promise To Unemployed

Presidential hopeful Jimmy Wanjigi shocked Kenyans as he directly slammed Orange Democratic Movement party leader Raila Odinga's promise of giving unemployed Kenyans a monthly stipend of 6,000 shillings if he gets elected.

Speaking from AIPCA church in Kutus, Kirinyaga County, Jimmy Wanjigi stated that it is not practical and fair to the hardworking Kenyans if the unemployed are given the monthly stipend.

"It is unpractical and unfair for hardworking Kenyans to work hard to build the nation, only for the government to allocate the money to non-working Kenyans.

Were he to implement such a programme, the country would spend Sh300 billion per year on the same." Jimmy Wanjigi stated.

This attracted several reactions from Kenyans who gave their divided opinions on the claims by Jimmy Wanjigi.

Take a look at some of the reactions:

Ben: "I don't understand this sector of baba.if the government is lacking 2k for the elderly.where will it get 6k for every youths.we have to be realistic."

Ogaro: "Looks like this time round, for the first time, ODM has a Great Presidential Candidate, shida ni Ticket."

What are your thoughts about Raila Odinga's stipend claims?
