Raila hunts for votes in Busia

National Super Alliance (NASA) Presidential candidate Raila Odinga ended his campaign trail in Busia County with promises to empower single mothers to do business and enhance the cash transfer programme for those aged 65 and above.

The NASA flagbearer says if elected on 8th of August, he will ensure free primary and secondary education saying education is a right to every Kenyan child.

Addressing a campaign Rally at Malaba Dispensary Grounds in Busia on Thursday, Raila said under his administration, no chief will be sacked.

Flanked by Busia Governor Sospeter Ojaamong whom he endorsed as his preferred candidate for Busia Gubernatorial race, Raila claimed that the Jubilee regime had embezzled funds since taking over the reins of power in 2013.

“My administration will seal all the loopholes after the peaceful transition on August 9th. It will be another Kenya, thus the need by NASA supporters not to relent from today to the announcement of the results.

The presidential hopeful added, “We shall also introduce National Insurance Fund which he said is the foundation of development in Kenya.

Raila said if elected, his government will revoke plans to establish a dry port in Naivasha, adding that his administration will also reinstate border points of Malaba, Busia and Namanga and Isebania to clear goods coming from Mombasa.

The main presidential contenders in this year’s general elections incumbent Uhuru Kenyatta and Raila Odinga of the opposition NASA have intensified their campaigns across the country in an attempt to woo undecided voters.

And as Kenyans go to the polls next week, expectations abound about the likely winner in the presidential poll.

On Wednesday, the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission IEBC successfully tested its electronic electoral transmission systems.

IEBC Chair Wafula Chebukati said the poll body is ready for the August 8th elections. The mock exercise conducted at the National Tallying center in Bomas of Kenya worked to assure the nation of the Commission’s commitment to deliver credible, free and fair elections.
