Raila Pulls Surprise Move During Supreme Court Final Ruling

NASA leader Raila Odinga on Wednesday pulled a surprise move...

Odinga used an innovative strategy to raise funds for the repeat Presidential polls slotted for October 17.

The NASA leader took to his Facebook page, which has over one million followers, to embed graphics that advertised his Mpesa Paybill on the live video footage of the Supreme Court full ruling.

The rather creative ad not only had the paybill displayed on both sides of the screen, but also a catchy slogan "Kata tikiti yako ya kwenda Canaan leo (Book your ticket to Canaan today)".

By the time of publishing this article, the live video had been watched by 48,000 Facebook users with varying views on the fund raising strategy.

Odinga has in the past week raised millions of shillings through the NASA campaign's mobile money paybill.
