"Kura Ni Yako Ukitaka Unipee, " Raila's Recalls How He Was Embarassed By Rowdy Youths In Iten

Azimio la Umoja Raila Odinga, a Kenyan presidential candidate, went to Iten Town in Elgoyo Marakwet County today to look for votes as the time gets closer to the 2022 election.

When talking to a crowd in the town, the leader of Azimio brought up how he was embarrased when he tried to sell his campaign to residents the last time he was there, in early April of this year. After people made fun of him in Iten, stones were thrown at his helicopter at Mzee Kibor's funeral in Uasin Gishu County the same day.

"Mara ya mwisho nilipokuwa hapa, vijana wengine walileta nyokonyoko nikawaambia kwamba hiyo sio ungwana (The last time I was here, some youths caused chaos and I told them that it's not good)," Raila said.

He said that politics is about listening to the politicians and then deciding who to vote for out of all the candidates. He said that in the end, the people who vote will decide who will lead them.

"Hakuna vita, mwisho ni kura tu. Na kura iko mfukoni mwako. Ukipenda unipee na ukipenda mpinzani wangu umpe alafu itahesabiwa (There is no chaos; in the end, your vote will decide. And you already have the vote. You can vote for me if you want, but if you like my competitor better, you can vote for him instead and your vote will still be counted "Raila said.

He said that after the votes are counted, he will accept the results even if his competitor wins, and that his competitor should do the same if he wins.

Raila said that the candidates should compete as brothers because, after the August election, Kenya will move on with or without them. He said that the election in 2022 will be very different from the ones in 2017 and 2007, after which there was chaos.

"Sisi ni mandugu. Kenya itakuwa ata baada ya tarehe tisa (We are brothers. Kenya will still be there after August 9) "Raila said.
