Raila drums up support for his bid in Samburu

The Azimio la Umoja One Kenya coalition is promising to introduce a livestock insurance program in Kenya to cushion livestock keepers who may incur losses due to drought.

Through its presidential candidate Raila Odinga, the Azimio coalition has also affirmed the need to streamline security in the country’s northern region even as he called on warring communities to live in peace.

While drumming up support for his bid to succeed President Uhuru Kenyatta, the ODM party leader has promised to heavily invest in the education sector if elected in the August 9, 2022 elections, noting that this will help tackle the problem of early marriages, especially in northern parts of the country.

Local leaders accompanying Raila led by lawmakers Maishon Leshomo and Naisula Lesuuda pointed out that the challenges facing the area have been exacerbated by high poverty levels.

Other leaders, including Peter Kenneth, said solutions to poor infrastructure, water shortages, food security, and improved tourism sectors, among others, call for the locals to vote for the Azimio la Umoja coalition if they are to be fully realized.

On his part, COTU Secretary General Francis Atwoli slammed Kenya Kwanza’s Bottom-up economic model proposal and described it as only aimed at exploiting the poor.
