As the clock ticks towards next year's general election, campaigns for the top-most seat in the land are gaining momentum.
On Monday, the DP toured Kibwezi in Ukambani whereby he met various UDA aspirants and later on met the small scale Business people as he popularised the bottom up economic model.
On the other hand, the former Prime minister Raila Odinga was in his backyard county of Kisumu where he urged residents to register in big numbers ahead of the general election.
Raila at the same time promised that his priority number one will be to deal with corruption decisively.
"President Uhuru Kenyatta said the country loses Sh2 billion daily to corruption and theft. This is unacceptable for taxpayers who are struggling to make a living.
I know the loopholes and where these corruption activities thrive and I will deal with them, " said Odinga.
He said that ever since he declared that he would not entertain corruption in his government if elected president, he has been receiving threatening messages.
“I have received messages and people have been threatening and warning me to go slow on corruption matters lest I lose the support of Kenyans should I contest in the 2022 General Election,” Raila said.
He however said that he rather not become a president of a country where people are corrupt.
“If that is what people want, I would rather not be president instead of leading a country where corruption is beyond 100 percent yet the perpetrators go scot-free,” he said.
He further said that his promise of giving Ksh 6000 stipend to the most vulnerable families will be attainable if given the opportunity to lead next year.
