Raila asks Coast residents to reject Jubilee in 2017

22 August 2016, 13:32 Gabriel Ngalla

Nairobi - CORD leader Raila Odinga has asked the Coastal people to reject Jubilee in the August 2017 polls.

Speaking after he attended the closure of the annual Mombasa cultural show dubbed ‘Tukutane Mombasa’ (Lets meet in Mombasa) at the Mama ngina drive in Likoni, Mombasa County Sunday evening, Raila said that the Jubilee government has not served the Coastal residents well compared to other parts of the Country.

The ODM party leader reiterated that Coastal residents have been duped with lies and empty promises since 2013 and to date the region is still hungry for development.

He insisted that locals should not listen to empty promises from President Uhuru Kenyatta and his Deputy since the two have only delivered in the rural areas and not other parts of the Country.

“Can anyone stand up and tell me openly if the land crisis in the region has been solved?” posed Raila.

He said that the Country is yet to get the leadership it deserves since most of the leaders have only served their selfish interest and Coastal residents should be aware of that trend.

“It is only the opposition that understands the plights of marginalized areas in the Country, and we have answers for such problems” reiterated Raila.

Raila asked the Coastal leaders to also reject hefty offers from the government but instead join the opposition to change the leadership of the Country.

Raila blamed those who left the opposition and joined the government terming them as selfish leaders who only want to quell their thirst for wealth and power but not at any point thinking of the suffering Coastal residents are currently going through.

Meanwhile Raila has termed the annual Mombasa cultural event as noble and which aims at developing the tourism sector in the Country.

Both Raila and Deputy President William Ruto have been camping at the Coast since last week to hunt for the Coastal votes with Ruto still extending his final visit to Lamu County on Monday and Tuesday to open various development projects including water projects and school in Mokowe
