Orange Democratic movement party leader Raila Odinga took a swipe on politicians criticising his social welfare program promise, saying that it was implementable.
Raila, while addressing political rally in Lamu, said he knew where to get the money to fund the ksh6000 monthly stipend to poor families.
“Those who think I can’t implement KSh6,000 monthly stipend if elected president are fools,” the ODM party leader said.
The former prime minister, promised to seal corruption loopholes and direct the money to the ksh150 billion yearly social welfare program that he promised kenyans should he ascend power next year.
“I’ve been a prime minister and I know where money is,” he said
Raila retaliated this few hours after Musalia Mudavadi who is also a presidential aspirant criticised Raila’s ksh6000 promise saying it was unreasonable economic wise.
“Where will you get the money to fund the program? Let us not lie to Kenyans with unachievable promises meant to hoodwink voters,” Musalia said during the church service at the Quakers friends International Center on Sunday 14th November 2021. More
