"Kazi Ni Kazi Ni Takataka" Raila Says As He Demands Meaningful Jobs While In Nanyuki [Video]

Moments after leaving the PCEA Nanyuki Township Church where had gone for a fellowship earlier in the day as he tours Laikipia county today on the Sunday of September 26th, the former Prime Minister Raila Odinga took his "reggae" to Nanyuki town to once again popularize his 2022 presidential bid in Mt. Kenya.

Raila who was accompanied by various leaders from ODM and Jubilee as well as Governor Nderitu Mureithi momentarily brought Nanyuki town to a standstill as his rally attracted quite a magnitude with eager residents converging around his motorcade and listen to them.

Then upon taking the microphone to address the people of Laikipia, Raila once again recited his "azimio la umoja" principles. That "it's possible to have a peaceful country. It's possible to eradicate extreme poverty, it's possible to have a united people who live in harmony in our country."

He also used his address to caution Kenyans against accepting mediocrity or being contented with the same when they can bargain or have a better.

That for instance, there are people that want poor people to remain poor by telling them that all jobs are fine. That they are saying regardless of your level of education or desire to have a better life, you should have no problem settling for mediocrity because "kazi ni kazi".

He warned that it shouldn't be that way. That China was able to transform more than three hundred million poor people from poverty to the middle income status in less than thirty years by investing in better education, promoting skills and creating meaningful opportunities for its citizens and not by offering short-term solutions or mediocre jobs and telling them to be contented with them because "every hustle is a hustle" or matters.

"We want to take twenty million Kenyans from poverty to prosperity. But we must equip our youth with relevant skills and give them meaningful jobs. Then you hear some people say kazi ni kazi. What's that? 'Kazi ni kazi ni takataka!" He said.
