Raila takes campaigns to Meru as D-day nears

The National Supper Alliance (Nasa) presidential flag bearer Raila Odinga yesterday took his campaigns to Meru and Tharaka Nithi counties where he blamed the National government for the high cost of living.

Speaking at Makutano shopping centre in Meru town, Kianjai, Muthara, Kangeta and Maili Tatu in Igembe Central, the former premier said poor leadership is to blame “for the many problems affecting the country”.

He urged Kenyans to turn out in large numbers and vote for him as he blamed the ruling Jubilee government of also failing to fight tribalism.

“It is very unfortunate that the many projects we initiated with the retired President have stalled. We shall pick from where we left and within 90 days, you will start seeing leadership changes,” he said.

At Kathwana in Tharaka North, co-principal Musalia Mudavadi said a Nasa government will prioritise the implementation of the Truth Justice and Reconciliation Commission (TJRC) to help end the perennial land tussle in the area.

He accused Deputy President William Ruto of being stumbling block to implementation of the report meant to address historical injustices in the country. They also promised to give Sh3,500 as monthly stipend to the elderly if they clinch power.
