Raila campaigns in Kericho

National Super Alliance (Nasa) presidential candidate Raila Odinga on Thursday campaigned in Kericho County where he addressed several roadside rallies.

Mr Odinga, who was accompanied by Nasa co-principal and Bomet Governor Isaac Ruto asked residents of the vote for the alliance in the August polls.

Addressing residents of Kapsoit and Kipsitet, Mr Odinga said food security and economy have performed dismally under the Jubilee administration.

“We only have about 30 days remaining to the ballot and its time we made a wise decision and choose a visionary leader,” said Mr Odinga.

He said residents of regions they have visited are complaining of high cost of living.

Mr Odinga went on to explain how jobs have become more elusive for many youth under the Jubilee leadership adding that salaries can no longer meet the skyrocketing cost of basic needs.

“These are the issues Nasa will address to ensure that the lives of Kenyans are improved. We are here to bring change,” he said.

The Bomet governor said the gap between the rich and the poor has widened under the Jubilee government.

He asked locals to give Nasa a chance as more resources will be allocated to counties.

“The people are growing thinner out of economic stress. We are missing Ugali on our tables. But as Nasa, we will divide the Kenyan budget well so that more women, youth, the old and everybody at the grassroots level get their share,” said Mr Ruto.

Mr Odinga is expected to address a rally at Kericho Moi Stadium later Thursday.
