- Azimio la Umoja Raila Odinga, the presidential candidate for the Kenya Alliance, is running for office in the general elections on August 9 for the fifth time.
Raila, who has run for president a record-breaking four times, has spent billions on his campaigns but has been unsuccessful in all of them.
There are rumors that certain governors currently in office have been funding Raila’s presidential bids for 2022, which has affected his supporters.
The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) has set a KSh 4.4 billion spending limit for the presidential race in the next general election.
Kenyans were shocked when a middle-aged man in Kisii sensationally sold his kidney to support Raila’s State House campaign.
An ardent admirer of the former prime minister, Daudi Abuya, was seen carrying a sign asking for someone to buy his kidney on the outskirts of Kisii town on Wednesday.
He claims that Raila’s presumably final bid for the presidency will be funded with the money.
Daudi declared, “I am selling my kidney to promote the campaigns of Martha Karua and Raila Odinga.
Daudi asserted that the recent publishing of the manifesto by Raila Odinga and Martha Karua, co-candidates for the 2022 presidential election and members of the Azimio la Umoja-One Kenya alliance, will end the crisis the nation has been experiencing in recent years.
“Their freshly published manifesto will give our nation new life. I want to help them in whatever way I can because of it,” the man continued.
On the illicit market, kidneys typically sell for KSh 12 million, but if a “donor” is lucky enough to survive surgery, they may only receive KSh 200,000.
