The contest to succeed President Uhuru Kenyatta is raising the political temperature in Kenya. Various figures have expressed interest in inheriting the country's highest office, but the struggle is considered as a two-horse race between Deputy President William Ruto and Orange Democratic Movement party leader Raila Amollo Odinga. The two have been touring the country, holding numerous campaign rallies in order to get Kenyans to support their political campaign.

Raila stated that in terms of health, he has spoken about Baba healthcare, which aspires to provide treatment to every Kenyan.
