- It is your chance to bring about the change you always wanted
Raila Odinga is positioning himself as a candidate for change. He is thinking about government accountability and making this a referendum on the 2010 constitution and efforts to implement that fully. On the other hand, Kenyatta promises big development projects in the future. His primary focus is on economic growth and regional security issues. It is completely your call to cast your vote to that leading presidential candidate, which is more likely to support the change you are looking for.
