Nairobi - CORD leader Raila Odinga says he is unsure whether he will run for the 2017 General Election, saying he is not sure if he will be alive.
Raila made the remarks during a ceremony to launch his website in Nairobi Friday, where he stated that his plans right now are to try reach out to Kenyans.
He dismissed the notion that the website he has created is a political avenue for the 2017 polls.
" Campaigns are not on my mind as I launch this website. I cannot start campaigning now for 2017. How? I don't even know if I will be alive," he said at the Panafric Hotel.
He added that the website would be important as it would help manage the needs of the youth.
" I am only responding to the needs of the time. I am launching my website for the interest of the youth. I am creating a platform where I can talk with young people," he added.
Raila insists that he is at the moment trying to build a relationship with Kenyans and that everything else comes second in that regard.
