Raila: Quest to lead nation driven by need for unity, stability

Opposition leader Raila Odinga says his quest to lead this nation is driven by the need for unity and stability.

Speaking at Ngecha shopping center in Limuru, Kiambu County, Raila said Kenya is yet to realize the vision of its founding fathers, which included among others fighting poverty and diseases.

Raila said he is a mission to ensure that the country remains united, peaceful, and economically stable in the post 2022 election.

The opposition leader said Kenya is still struggling to deal with issues that were bedeviling this nation 57 years ago yet her peers across the globe have made significant strides.

Elsewhere, businessman Jimmy Wanjigi who has shown interest in seeking the presidency through the ODM party has termed the move by the Energy and Petroleum Regulatory Authority to further burden Kenyans with high cost of fuel as shameful.

Wanjigi who spoke after a meeting with the business community from Ruiru and Githurai in Ruiru town said that it was disheartening to burden Kenyans with high cost of fuel at this most difficult time.

“This is a total disgrace. In our neighbouring countries, fuel prices are still relatively low. In Uganda fuel is  retailing at Ksh 130, Ksh 110 in Tanzania and Ksh 55 in Ethiopia, a landlocked country. These oppression acts are the reason we are saying that they should all resign,” Wanjigi said.

The presidential hopeful noted with concern that the fuel prices hike will trigger an increase in food prices in the country.
