Former Prime Minister Raila Odinga is advising his supporters to come out in large numbers and register as voters and boost their chances at the polls.
Raila Odinga who was speaking during an interview with Nam Lolwe FM on a morning show, compared the 2022 political battle to a hunting expedition.
Raila has promised his supporters victory in the next general election if they come out and register as voters.
“Our people should come out in numbers and register for the national ID and take advantage of the continuous voter registration to list themselves as voters,” Raila said.
However, Raila didn’t say whether he would be on the ballot or not.
Raila advised that even candidates who just received their Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) exam results should register as voters.
“Even candidates who have just received their Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education exam results should not be left out of the drive to have everyone on the IEBC roll,” Raila stated.
While talking about the same, Raila explained that he is mobilizing his supporters to register as voters because they always lag behind in voter registration.
“Our area always lags behind in voter registration. That is why I am telling our people to throng the IEBC offices to register and not to wait for the mass registration normally marked by long queues,” he stated.
While talking about the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI), the African Union High Representative for Infrastructure said that they have lined up a strong legal team and they are going to succeed.
“We are in the Court of Appeal and we have lined up a strong legal team. How do they know we are not going to succeed in court?” he asked.
Raila is opposing the plan by some lawmakers to amend the constitution through a parliamentary initiative.
