Governor promises Kenyans free cows if elected president
Presidential aspirants are lining up goodies and promises to Kenyans as the country nears the August 2022 general elections.
They include Murang’a Governor Mwangi Wa Iria who says he is ready to gift each farmer in the country one cow if he is elected Head of State.
“I urge Kenyans to donate cows to the party so we can give Kenyans who are struggling and also those living with disabilities,” he said.
Wa Iria who has erected billboards with messages of his presidential bid in all major towns across the country, further stated any candidate seeking a seat with his Usawa party will donate cows.
“You will not vie without donating a certain number of cows as per the seat you are vying for. This rule I engraved in the party requirements and signed by the IEBC,” he stressed.
Besides Wa Iria, Raila Odinga, the Azimio la Umoja party leader, Raila Odinga who is also gunning for the presidency has promised Sh 6,000 to each unemployed youth once elected.
“I have been Prime Minister before and so I know where I will get the money from,” he remarked.
And Deputy President William Ruto who is seeking to succeed his boss President Uhuru Kenyatta says he will create 4 million job opportunities for the youth through setting aside Sh100b in form of soft loans for budding businesses if elected.
The culture of promises to Kenyans by politicians during the elections season has always been here,
In 2017, President Kenyatta promised to create at least 1.3 million jobs annually over five years once re-elected as president.
However, youths have been complaining year in year out of the influx in the rates of unemployment.
In addition, President Kenyatta and Ruto have struggled to deliver the state of the art stadiums, laptops for primary school kids they promised Kenyans.
