UHURU almost cried when he realised that MAASAIs are in ODM - RAILA ODINGA says.Other Political News, Politics 14:25
Saturday, October 1, 2016 - CORD leader, Raila Odinga, said on Thursday that Narok County is an ODM zone pointing out that this was evident during the burial of former Minister, William Ole Ntimama, two weeks ago.
Addressing a mammoth rally at Kilgoris, Raila, who is also the ODM party leader, thanked the Maasai community for rejecting Jubilee during the burial of Ntimama and said this is an indication that the Maasai want an alternative leadership in 2017.
“President Kenyatta got furious and started lecturing everybody including church leaders because the Narok people showed him they are in ODM,” Raila said.
“The Maa and the coast have suffered most due to land injustices, economic marginalisation, poor health services and lack of infrastructure.” Raila added.
He urged the Maasai community that if he is elected President in 2017, he will implement the Truth, Justice and Reconciliation Commission (TJRC) within the first week of leadership and warned all those who have grabbed public land.
“We will implement the report and punish all those who have grabbed land,” Raila said.
