Uhuru and Raila at a past event in Kisumu

It is no secret that since joining government, areas formerly as opposition zones have been receiving goodies. One of such places is Kisumu, a place which has been alienated by successive regimes, due to its political leaning.

The National government has set aside 1.4B shillings to put up the Jomo Kenyatta International Stadium, a 30,000 capacity modern sports complex. This come just months after the revamping of the Kisumu Port, which the state poured a cool 2B shillings.

While speaking during the groundbreaking ceremony of the facility, Kisumu Governor Anyang Nyongo recognized the special role Raila Odinga played in lobbying for the construction of the multi-million facility in Kisumu.

”Joined @AMB_A_Mohammed for the groundbreaking of Jomo Kenyatta International Stadium at the Mamboleo ASK Ground, Ksm and unveiling the plaque for Jaramogi Oginga Odinga Sports Ground. Special appreciation goes to H.E Uhuru Kenyatta & @RailaOdinga,”’Nyongo Tweeted.

The ODM leader today cuts a figure of a high ranking state official, eventhough he does not have a designated office or assigned government roles. His Capitol Hill offices have been a bee-hive of activities, ever since him and the Head of State shook hands to work together in March 2018.
