Nyanza Leaders State Why Kenyans Should Vote For Raila in 2022 as They Hit on His Critics

A section of Nyanza Region leaders on Saturday urged the other communities to rally behind the ODM leader Raila Odinga in the coming elections.

The leaders led by Shakeel Shabbir, Senator Fred Outa, Olago Aluoch and Onyango Koyoo while speaking in Chemelil Kisumu County during the burial of former Kismu Governor Jack Ranguma's daughter Sonya Hawi claimed that Raila is best suited to succeed President Uhuru Kenyatta due to his experience in the political space.

As quoted by People's Daily, the leaders added that Raila's track record shows a patriotic leader who has been dedicated to change the lives of Kenyans since he joined politics, and has been able to show what democracy entails.

The Senator gave examples of Raila's decision to declare Mwai Kibaki Tosha, and his agreement to shake hands as the notable political decisions Raila made despite gaining nothing from them.

"We are asking voters across the country to consider voting for Raila this time as a dedicated leader who has showed love to all Kenyans beyond their tribal creeds," said Outa.

This comes at a time when the ODM boss has been touring different parts of the country in bid to unite Kenyans through the Azimio La Umoja movement.

The leaders hit on Raila's critics who have been downplaying his monthly stipend to unemployed youths, and his association with regional kingpins, influential leaders from Mt Kenya and his recent visits to the Central region.
