Raila vows to bounce back

30 September 2013, 09:44

Nairobi - Former Prime Minister Raila Odinga, cautioned his political rivals against writing off his political career.

Addressing followers at a rally in Siaya County, Odinga shot down arguments that his age and political setbacks had put paid to his prospects of leading the country.

Odinga is 68 and has failed to wrestle the Presidential seat most recently this year when he lost to President Uhuru Kenyatta for the position.

“Age does not matter. There have been leaders who have successfully steered their nations to prosperity despite their old age,” he said during a political rally for the October 17 by-elections.

The Siaya Senatorial seat fell vacant after the High Court nullified the election of the then Senator Paul Rasanga citing gross electoral malpractices.

The former Premier’s caution comes at a time when The National Movement for Democratic Advancement has intensified calls for constitutional amendments that will establish 70 as the age above which a candidate will not be permitted to vie for the presidency.

Odinga meanwhile criticized the government for failing to address urgent matters bordering on insecurity, unemployment and the ever-increasing cost of living.

Coalition for Reforms and Democracy co-principle and the Bungoma County Senator, Moses Wetang’ ula urged the residents to vote in favor of CORD.

Speaking at the same event, he claimed that it would be “shameful” for any another party to win the Siaya Senatorial seat considering the region is the party’s stronghold.
