ODM party pioneer Raila Odinga has charmed single mothers with a pledge that they won’t ever suffer under his government.
Talking in Kawangware on Sunday, Raila said should he be elected President in August, his administration would save aside a special fund to mitigate the economic hardships of single mothers.
Odinga said his administration was focused on guaranteeing that children of such families don’t suffer.
“Wale wamama ambao hawana mabwana, single mother, awe ni mjane, alitalikiwa na bwana au alidanganywa na kijana, hatutaki wamama hao wahangaike au watoto wao,” he stated.
“Watapata msaada kutoka kwa serikali.”
Raila further repeated that his Sh6,000 stipend to the jobless is possible. He berated his critics saying he knows where to find the funds from.
“Wanasema ati Baba anadanganya watu hakuna pesa, Baba hadanganyi. Raila Amolo Odinga amekuwa waziri mkuu wa Kenya kwa miaka sita, najua pahali hiyo pesa iko,” he said.
Further, the former Prime Minister promised to seal corruption loopholes and deal with embezzlers.
“Najua mahali wezi wanachukua wanapenya na pesa zetu, tutaziba hiyo mianya yote, tutamenyana nao ana kwa ana,” he said.
