He also accused President William Ruto of failing to provide relief to millions of Kenyans facing drought.
According to official data, more than 4.2 million Kenyans experience acute food shortage, with those in dire need of emergency response at 785,000.
“This situation requires a massive emergency response programme to ensure rapid delivery of food, water and medicine to the millions of people, not just in arid and semi-arid areas but in virtually all corners of the country, who are affected by the prolonged drought.
“This required emergency response is evidently missing, but instead, the government is consumed by politics of survival and the elections of 2027,” Odinga said.
He regretted that senior officials in the administration were placing blame on the previous government rather than assuming full responsibility for leading the nation.
“As we wait for that plan, the Kenyans caught in this drought and famine situation need help now, not optics and politics of blame games,” Odinga urged.
This comes after President Ruto told the country that his administration would bring down the cost of maize flour in one year.
