NASA presidential candidate Raila Odinga has said that he will not jail President Uhuru Kenyatta and DP William Ruto once takes over state House after the next general elections. 

The former prime minister instead promised to offer them an opportunity to learn about leadership within the five years he will be in power if the NASA Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) is anything we can go by.

“We will give them work to do and we will not jail them but show them how the government is run because it seems they are overwhelmed,” Odinga said as quoted by Nation.

The Cord leader, who was speaking at Kibera Primary School where he went to check his IEBC registration, took a swipe at the current government for lying to Kenyans in broad daylight about the issue of maize as the cost of living continues to escalate.

“They are cheating people that they have brought maize from Mexico but this is just a temporary thing of one or two months because they are using it to seek for votes. Do not be cheated that you are getting cheap maize flour. They have increased the price of by Sh1.9 and use the more money you are spending to finance the subsidy maize flour,” he said.
