Oburu's EALA Job Comes Back To Haunt Raila As He Promises Jobs To Youths

ODM Leader Raila Odinga.

It's less than ten months to next year's general election and the foremost presidential contenders are busy giving Promises to the electorate.

Since Unemployed youths form the biggest Proportion of Voters, they have become the central focus as everyone is promising them heaven taking advantage of their desperation.

The ODM leader Raila Odinga is on record Promising to pay Unemployed youths Ksh 6000 per month even as his critics faulted him of making false promises that he can't fulfil.

Now today, the former Prime minister was at it again when he met youths from Mount Kenya region.

While urging them to support him, Raila promised to appoint 4 youths to his cabinet once elected into the office of the president.

He said that he is confident that youths will deliver having tried them in the grand coalition government.

His promise has elicited mixed reactions with a majority of kenyans taking a swipe at his decision to nominate his brother to east Africa legislative assembly.

Oburu Odinga who is an economist by profession has been a member of EALA together with Kalonzo Musyoka's son.

Others questioned why ODM didn't consider a youth when they nominated the aged oburu Odinga to east African Parliament.

Others, however wondered how the nomination of youths will help the rest given that already we have youths such as Zack kinuthia whose impact is yet to be felt among the youths.

Below are the screenshots of the reactions on-line.

Most Promises made by Politicians are rarely fulfilled. Do you think Raila will fulfil these promises?
