Made in Kenya

While addressing Kenyans in Minnesota, ODM-K MPs Raila Odinga and Omingo Magara attributed the rise in crime to unemployment.

It is ironic,that they used the same forum to sell custom made attire made by Mr. Odinga's
personal tailor in Abidjan, Ivory Coast. This simple action, -innocent though it may have been- speaks volumes about Kenyan leaders who preach water while drinking wine. Jobs are not a creation of the government but come as a result of trade.
