Raila: My tenure will be about economy, jobs – The Star Kenya

Azimio presidential candidate Raila Odinga has pledged to bring the third revolution that will better the lives of Kenyans if elected President in the August 9, polls.
He said the liberation will be about improving the economy.
Raila said the first and second liberations were about independence and promulgation of the new constitution.
“The last liberation is for the economy. It is for youths and women to have jobs and Kenyans’ lives to be improved,” Raila said.
The ODM spoke during a political rally at Kibwezi Town in Makueni on Tuesday.
Raila said he will fight illiteracy, poverty and diseases.
“If we get rid of the three enemies, Kenya will shine. Kenyans will walk with pride, heads high,” Raila said.
Raila said the Azimio government will bring change to the country.
“This journey is different from those that have been there before. We will bring change which will benefit all Kenyans.” 
“To support the less privileged, those with nothing. They won’t sleep hungry any longer but receive Sh6, 000 per month.”
He said single-parent mothers face lots of challenges and hence will receive support from his government.
Raila urged Kenyans to get ready with their national identity and voter cards to vote him in as their next president on August 9.
Kalonzo told Raila to consider giving the Ukambani region a priority if he wins the elections and ensure it was developed.
He said the region was lagging behind in terms of development until he became Vice President.
“Though I’m a lawyer, I like history. When I was a small child, there was only one bus plying Kibwezi- Kisooni route. It used one week to make the one-way journey,” Kalonzo said.
“When I got the opportunity to be the country’s vice president, I came here with a contractor Sino Hadio who started the construction of this road from Kibwezi – Kitui – Kisooni. Raila who will be the fifth President of Kenya can remember since he was a Minister for Public Works then.” 
He said the road connects Ethiopia and Mombasa hence very important.
Kalonzo accused Deputy President of playing a role in making the road construction stall when the Jubilee government took over in 2013.
“Ruto played part in the road’s construction stoppage and the contractor left. In 2018, President Uhuru Kenyatta demanded that the road’s construction be completed. The president will commission its completion any time soon as one of his legacy projects,” Kalonzo said.
“Raila, now my prayer if I become your chief CS and Martha Karua as your deputy. I want to plead with you, that your government should construct a dual carriageway from Nairobi to Mombasa.”
Kalonzo said Raila will also ensure the construction of the Mwingi- Kisooni- Moyale road and make an easy connection between Ethiopia and Mombasa.
