He told residents of Tigania that he would fast track delayed road projects because the Jubilee government was not keen to complete projects to benefit locals. Raila said the Jubilee administration was riddled with corruption, something the NASA administration would eradicate.
At the same time the NASA presidential candidate said they had evidence that Jubilee had links with a ballot papers printing firm that it planned to use to print more papers, to rig the election.
Winnie Kaburu, the Wiper candidate for the Governor’s seat, urged the Ameru to support Raila, for them to experience good transformation. “As you vote me for governor, please also vote for Raila for president because we have what it takes to lift the region and country,’ she said.
This came even as Mount Kenya Youth Caucus, a lobby campaigning for President Uhuru Kenyatta, castigated Raila for trying to divide the Ameru and Kikuyu for political expediency.
