Nyeri - Gatundu south member of Parliament, Moses Kuria has called upon CORD leader Raila Odinga to retire from active politics and go to his Bondo home to take care of his grand children.
Kuria said that at his advanced age, Raila should not be looking to be elected as President but should instead be thinking about his retirement.
Speaking Sunday in Nakuru town where he accompanied deputy President William Ruto, Kuria called on Raila to learn from President Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto who will retire at the ages of 61 and 66 respectively.
"If Uhuru will retire at 61 and Ruto at 66, then how can Raila expect to be elected at the age of 71?" he posed.

"Raila should retire and go home so that he can take care of his grandchildren," he added.
Referring to Raila as his good friend, Kuria said that the future of this country lies in the hands of youthful leaders and Raila should admit that luck has not been on his side.
"My good friend has tried so many times but it seems that luck has not been on his side. He is a good person but luck has not been on his side and he should allow young blood to lead this country," said Kuria.
