Raila Odinga changes tune saying Sh 6000 stipend is for poor people, not unemployed youths
Raila Odinga changes tune on unemployed youth Sh 6000 pledge

 Raila Odinga, the head of the ODM, disappoints Kenyan youngsters by claiming that Sh 6000 is intended for poor Kenyans rather than them.


Former Prime Minister Raila Odinga withdrew his prior pledge to the young people on November 8, 2021, in which he stated that he would pay every unemployed youth a monthly stipend of Sh 6000.


Raila indicated on Sunday, March 27, 2022, in Makongeni, Nairobi, that the Sh 6000, which was first dangled as bait to entice the young ahead of the 2022 election, will be targeted at impoverished families, not youths, as previously claimed.

Raila also stated that if he replaces President Uhuru Kenyatta in 2022, he plans to spend Sh 12 billion each month on his ambitious social welfare agenda.



Raila explained, "This plan would incorporate the present social protection program, on which we have already spent Sh 37 billion."


"We'd add roughly Sh 100 billion to achieve this, and we'd broaden it to cover Kenya's lowest of the poor," Raila continued.

Raila stated that in order to acquire the cash, his government would close all corruption loopholes and re-direct monies that will be cut from ministry budgets, with certain dockets suffering a 25% cut.
