“One, he must agree to open the server. Stop recruitment of IEBC commissioners and three is the issue of the cost of living in the country.”

“Kenyans are suffering seriously. Some of them cannot put food on the table. Children are not going to school. The price of basic commodities Unga, fuel is too high for the people,” Raila said.
