Raila Odinga has always got it right but not this time round. Kenyans have given Raila a dressing-down for asking President Uhuru Kenyatta to consider Peter Kenneth for a government position.
‘Shame on you!’ Self Proclaimed NRM General Miguna Miguna said. According to the exiled lawyer, Raila should be advocating for jobless youth to get jobs, not a billionaire thief.
Shame on you, @RailaOdinga. Instead of advocating for brilliant young Kenyans like Kelvin Ochieng' to be gainfully employed and EMPOWERED, you are begging Despot Uhuru to give Peter Kenneth – a billionaire thief who owns an insurance company and a bank – a job? Stop conmanship!

Speaking at the burial of Kenneth’s mother, Mama Rahab Wambui, in Murang’a County, Raila heaped praise on the former Gatanga MP, describing him as a gentleman with vast experience who deserves a role in government.

Kenyans on social media have asked Uhuru to consider giving Peter Kenneth a job as ‘the Official Opposition leader.’ This is perhaps a direct shot aimed at Raila who ‘surrendered’ his position as the official opposition leader after the Handshake.
Let them give him the role of the opposition leader where RAO has failed.

Most youths are crying over the state of unemployment in the country yet Raila who was once considered their saviour has turned his back against them.
So Peter Kenneth, a billionaire who owns properties, insurance company, banks has got Raila begging on his behalf for the president to give him a job.
Us who own a gas, woofer and laptop, whom should we beg for a job? Maybe a God who created God can help us.

Peter Kenneth needs connection to find a Job.
Peter Kenneth is a former MP, a former presidential Candidate and there is a possibility he owns a Bank and an insurance firm.
A fresh graduate will need more than just Education and Connection to gain any meaningful employment. #KOT

Peter Kenneth owns an insurance company and a bank. But the rapacious elites are still advocating for a job for him when we have several youths in the country like Kevin who are jobless. Why can't you empower the youth instead of creating political sinecures for castrated losers? pic.twitter.com/JQAYRwb8w0

Raila as if just telling Uhuru to give Peter Kenneth a job is not enough, went ahead to give details why he deserves that state appointment.
“He (Kenneth) has worked for the government before, in the banking and insurance sectors. He also loves football and that is something we have in common…”
All those praises still have not made sense to angry unemployed Kenyans. They have gone ahead to accuse Raila of practicing blind politics.
Blind politics,raila need peter kenneth for his ego.baba nonsense
