Raila receives defectors from Kajiado to ODM
Orange Democratic Movement ODM leader Raila Odingaon Monday received defectors and leaders from Kajiado East region.
Odinga who graced the meeting held at Chungwa House Nairobi, promoted his Azimio la Umoja conference, set for Friday, December 10 at the Moi International Sports Centre in Kasarani.
He said he will declare his political position, adding that he has the solutions the country requires.
"Siku hiyo itakua siku kubwa, harusi kubwa kwa wakenya wote. Ningetaka kuona watu kutoka kila sehemu ya nchi wakijitokeza kwa wingi," said Odinga.
Speaking at the same event, Suna East MP Junet Mohammed backed Odinga's words lauding the handshake between Odinga and President Uhuru Kenyatta which he said helped in uniting the country.
"It will be a very historical day because you can see the kind of unity this country has achieved after the handshake. You can see the peace and tranquility that has taken route in this country since the handshake. Most importantly it is a meeting for all tribes, parties and Kenyans," he said.
Mr. Odinga further maintained his call to unity drumming up support for his Azimio la Umoja call.
"The main goal of 'Azimio la Umoja' is to unite all Kenyans without discrimination on tribal lines. Everyone is a Kenyan first before belonging to a particular tribe. If we unite our country in that manner, we will be ready to protect this nation," said Odinga.
Odinga implored the new members to be ambassadors of peace even as he outlined his strategy for reviving the country’s economy and improving the livelihoods of vulnerable Kenyans through the social protection program.
The ODM boss was flanked by several leaders including ODM Secretary General Edwin Sifuna.
