In a rejoinder to a mammoth full crowd at the historic Uhuru Park in Nairobi, Raila Odinga pumped into the cheering crowd massive promises, in his fourth bid to unseat President Uhuru Kenyatta.

In the words of the founding leader of Kenya, Mzee Jomo Kenyatta, Raila said that his mission is to fight poverty, disease and ignorance as well as creating massive jobs for the youth and women.

On the highly touted free basic education, Odinga has promised to ideally scrap any levies being charged and improve the remuneration for troubled teachers.

Leveraging on the recent health crisis that saw doctors out of hospitals for over 100 days, Odinga has assured his supporters that, if elected, his administration will be on the forefront to fairly remunerating medics.

“Tunataka huduma za matibabu ziweze kupatikana kewa njia rahisi na nafuu na pia tutalipa madaktari kwa namna iunavyostajili,” Odinga said.

Loosely translated: “We want universal access to medical care; be affordable and readily available. We will also pay doctors.”

In 2013, however, incumbent Uhuru Kenyatta had similar promises, and his administration has attracted criticism, thanks to the massive corruption that has led to massive losses of billions of shillings.
