According to Manyora, Raila's Sh 6,000 pledge to unemployed youths is cheap politics since the plan has not been well thought and tens of questions raised on the same have not been answered.
"Those advising Raila have not given him a well-thought out policy on how it will be achieved, where the money will come from, how they will identify the beneficiaries among other burning queries. Those intellectuals can fail you, it is therefore important for Raila to look for the right advisers and as a politician, he must connect his manifesto to what Kenyans are going through on the ground," posed Manyora.
The UoN lecturer added that Raila's Azimio La Umoja has already failed to counter Deputy President William Ruto's hustler nation.
"The reality on the ground is that Azimio has not countered hustler politics, the sh6,000 has not countered the bottom-up model, thus ODM must be strong in their campaign messaging, although I always believe that Raila is a man who can come up with another trick to woo voters before next year," added Manyora.
