Why Raila will be a good president

Why Raila will be a good president

By Boniface Mwangi

Azimio la Umoja One Kenya Presidential candidate Raila Odinga is no saint but he is going to be a good president because he deeply cares about Kenya and Kenyans. He has made mistakes but he is also a man who has paid a heavy price for fighting for Kenyans.

He was arrested in 1982 and spent six years in jail.

While in jail, his mother died but he was not informed until two months later.

Raila was released in February 1988, only to be arrested in September 1988. He spent 9 years in jail for fighting not for his gain but for a better Kenya.

He has undergone physical, emotional and psychological torture.

A man whose father, Jaramogi Oginga Odinga was a selfless freedom fighter, whose family has suffered immensely is compared to a thief who has never worked anywhere in his entire life. The only pay-slip William Ruto has ever seen is his salary as a member of parliament and now as Deputy President but Ruto is a billionaire.

It’s an open secret how he got his billions.

When Raila Odinga and Martha Karua were getting beaten and harassed by the Moi regime, Ruto and Rigathi Gachagua were working for that regime.

The 2022 elections should be a walk in the park for the people’s president, Raila Odinga.
