Raila Gives Details of His Recent Discussion With Uhuru, Reveals What'll Happen in Two Weeks

ODM leader Raila Odinga has delivered good news for Kenyans involved in farming, saying that they will soon experience reduced costs of production.

The former Prime Minister says that the Jubilee government will soon reduce the price of farm inputs, especially fertilizer, among complains regarding the rising prices of the commodity.

The leader has said that this is one of the things he discussed with President Uhuru Kenyatta recently, in a bid to save the suffering Kenyans.

Addressing his supporters in Nakuru on Sunday, he said that Uhuru has agreed to intervene, and the state will ensure that the prices go down within two weeks, adding that this is also an issue he will dress if elected president in the August general elections.

"After August elections,I will ensure that manure will be charged below Ksh 3000.I spoke with Uhuru the other day and I assure you in less than two weeks you will see the prices go low. We want to help out farmers through a system called smart agriculture," he said, as was quoted by Citizen Digital.

Among those who have also taken issue with the rising cost of agricultural production are allies of Deputy President William Ruto, who have been accusing Uhuru of making life hard for farmers.

This they have been saying while drumming up support for Ruto, the main opponent of Raila, who they claim has the President's backing and is ,therefore, not the right person for the job.

Raila also promised to crush graft if elected president, adding that his government will expose all those involved in the vice in the country.

"We will fight corruption. Corruption is a big enemy to our nation. Not only for the rich but also for the common mwananchi," he is further quoted.

He was accompanied by some of his allied leaders led by host governor Lee Kinyanjui and Ndiritu Muriithi of Laikipia county.
