Raila who took his rallies to Kisumu today, stated that this will be his government’s way of supporting the unemployed in towns and upcountry.
” The other time I said this but some took it as a joke, the truth is that we are going to roll out a social protection program that will ensure that those who don’t have jobs get monthly stipends of sh. 6000 and I know where the money will come from,” said Raila
Former prime Minister added that his administration will block all corruption loop -holes and the money channeled to fund projects.
“Last time President uhuru Kenyatta mentioned that Kenya losses Ksh. 2 Million everyday. My program will only cost around Ksh. 140 Billion. First I will block all loop holes then we channel the money to assist the vulnerable in the society,” added the ODM Chief.
While addressing the public at Kondele , the ODM party leader request the youths to rally behind him by ensuring that they have registered as voters.
