Clever Raila Catches Ruto Off-guard, Reveals What He Promised in 2013 and What He is Now Offering

ODM leader Raila Odinga has mocked Deputy president William Ruto over some of the promises he gave to Kenyans during the 2013 campaigns and have failed to deliver, yet he is making another serious promises ahead of 2022 election.

The ODM supremo was speaking on Saturday during a meeting with a group of youths in Naivasha, Nakuru County, when he warned Kenyan youths from being swayed by fake promises from self-centred politicians.

Raila said that in the run to 2013 election, the Jubilee government said that he was analog and promised to distribute laptops to nursery kids across the country.

"May we remind you that sometime around 2013, while campaigning, some people said that we ere analog and they were digital and said they will give every child a laptop," Raila said.

Raila said that most of the kids who were in nursery schools by then are now graduating but ironically, the same person who promised them laptops is now offering wheelbarrows after graduating.

"These children are now finishing form four and now you are offering them wheelbarrows, is that not a contradiction?," he posed.

The ODM leader promised to create employment for the youths when he becomes the 5th president of Kenya. He mentioned putting an end to harassment by authorities in flower farming and revive the horticulture in Naivasha and ensuring youths are given opportunities in elective positions as well as being allowed to supply products to County governments among his plans to create employment for the youths.
