Come out and vote, Says Raila


ODM party leader Raila Odinga arrived in Kisumu City aboard a Railways train which he boarded from Muhoroni as he called upon his supporters to be ready for the last registration by the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC).

Raila says the last registration posted poor numbers noting that his win is pegged on the turnout of new voters.

He says he is ready to battle Deputy President William Ruto in the coming polls in 2022.

Raila noted that the coming registration will be the last before Kenyans go to the polls and everyone who has not registered must seize the opportunity.

He says he is the General and told his supporters to wait for his directions and vote when IEBC opens the exercise in August 2022.

Raila says Azimo La Umoja, which he launched recently in Nairobi, is the vehicle that will take the country to the Promised Land.

He was accompanied by Kakamega Governor Wycliffe Oparanya, Kisii Governor James Ongwae and Kisumu Governor Prof. Anyang Nyong’o.

The train resumed operations on Friday last week after a 15 years break.

However, yesterday, the train derailed in Muhoroni in what Kenya Railways linked to the ongoing rains in the region.

In a statement, the KR assured passengers of their safety while traveling in the train.

The statement further reiterated that KR is committed to deliver its mandate to the people of Kenya in a safe, secure and reliable way and appeals to all Kenyans to stay alert and safe.
