Raila meets central MPs, days after meeting Mt Kenya billionaires
ODM leader Raila Odinga has met with Mt. Kenya region leaders, days after meeting Mt Kenya billionaires.
The early morning meeting in Nairobi was to craft a campaign strategy, where the ODM leader assured the leaders that he will cooperate and work together with the rich vote region in the near future.
Raila who was speaking when he met about 25 Central region leaders, said the Mt. Kenya leaders have shown him different routes to use while traversing the region in search of votes.
"I appreciate each and every effort by the leaders to host me, and they have shown me different routes to follow until you, we reach the Lenana peak, and we have agreed that we are in this match altogether,” Raila said.
Raila further said in his quest for the top seat he was looking for partners from Mt Kenya, not followers who will be committed to fighting poverty to raise the prosperity of Kenyans at large.
He said he is willing to work with the region and smaller parties from the mountain, saying there are those that have shown interest in joining his bandwagon.
“We are committed to fighting poverty so that we can raise our people to prosperity, we are committed to ensuring that our children get proper education.
The ODM leader was flanked by Majority Leader in the National Assembly Amos Kimunya, who said they welcome the conversation and are looking forward to continuing with the conversation.
“We can attest that it was a successful meeting, and he has guaranteed us that the interests of our region are safe with him because we have common objectives,” Kimunya said.
KImunya hinted at another meeting in the coming days with a bigger number expected and will also engage Jubilee and ODM in the conversation as they seek to represent the interests of the electorate.
