Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party leader Raila Odinga is the only presidential candidate with an achievable plan for Kenya, Westlands MP Tim Wanyonyi has said.

In an estate-to-estate campaign trail in Nairobi’s Eastlands, Wanyonyi rallied Kenyans behind Raila’s bid saying the ODM leader has all the requirements of a leader.

While addressing locals at Friends Church in Donholm on Tuesday, he said Kenyans should give Raila a chance to lead the country.

“Raila is our president in Azimio and this time round, we don’t want to gamble. We have to ensure that he is in State House,” he said.

He added: “Kenya has agreed that Baba is the fifth president of Kenya and in ODM, we have said that Nairobi is ours. Nairobi governor must be from ODM and the one who has offered himself is none other than Tim Wanyonyi."

He said that Raila's Babacare is a programme that will go a long way in helping the elderly, the less fortunate and the general public in accessing health care.

He further said single mothers, widows, widowers and orphans will also benefit from Raila's presidency with a monthly stipend as well as the jobless.

Wanyonyi is campaigning to succeed Anne Kananu as Nairobi governor.

Others in the race include Johnson Sakaja (Kenya Kwanza), Margaret Wanjiru (UDA) and Richard Ngatia (Azimio).
