President Uhuru Kenyatta has drummed support for Azimio la Umoja presidential candidate Raila Odinga and the Azimio movement in the August elections.

Uhuru was addressing a mammoth crowd that came out to see their president at Korogocho, Mathare, after officially launching the Level 6 Mama Margaret Kenyatta Children Hospital in the area.

Uhuru cautioned the residents of the area against leaders who trade in lies and politicising government agenda to drive their personal interests.

The president assured the public that the government has no problem with Kenyans running legitimate business appropriately.

He promised to meet boda boda operators soon to devise ways of improving the sector and ensure maximum benefit.

"We have no problem with anyone doing their business in the right manner. I will organize to meet you soon so that together we can work on how to improve the sector and ensure you reap maximum benefits from your sweat," the president said.

Uhuru said they will sit as leaders and chat a way forward as he appealed to the crowd to back Raila and Azimio la Umoja movement.

“We will sit as leaders and agree on the way forward…So, will you hold on to Baba and Azimio?” Uhuru posed to the crowd that went into a frenzy, responding in the affirmative.

Uhuru also cautioned the youth, including boda boda riders, against politicians out to misuse them for cheap political mileage.
