ODM leader Raila Odinga says the 2022 General Election campaigns should be issue-based on a platform to give hope and not to cause divisions among Kenyans.

He says at the moment, Kenyans and especially the youth feel disenfranchised and disenchanted as a result of unemployment adding that mechanisms should be put in place to create jobs and other opportunities for them to feel part of the nation building.

Odinga was speaking today at Chungwa House in Nairobi after receiving election campaign vehicles donated by Homeboys Entertainment in partnership with a Mombasa-based businessman, Bernard Waore.

Odinga urged Kenyans to continue adhering to Covid-19 containment measures put by the government to help stop the spread of the virus.

“Election period will have a lot of human activity and coming during this time of the pandemic, it is important for everyone involved in the campaigns including members of the public to take the necessary precautions to avoid contracting the virus,” Odinga said.

Director of Homeboys Entertainment Mike Rabar said the donation of the vehicles fully fitted with the state-of-the-art sound system.

Rabar adding that the vehicles will go a long way in boosting the audibility of his campaign as Kenyans gear up for the electioneering period.

During the event Odinga also received 3000 face masks, hand sanitizers, and protective gowns to be used by the party in the campaign.

They were donated by businessman Samuel Oliech Omolo from Biopharm Technologies, manufacturers of sanitizers and medical equipment.

Odinga is expected to be in Bungoma County tomorrow for the funeral of the mother of ODM politician Moses Nandalwe in Sirisia Sub-County.

He will also travel to Garissa County on Monday ahead of the Azimio la Umoja Convention, the Northern-Kenya Edition.
