RAILA TO MEET PWDS IN NAIROBI
Tuesday 22nd November 2016, the biggest ever gathering of Persons with Disabilities with a Political Party will be held in Nairobi. The Breakfast meeting whose theme is “WALEMAVU MBELE PAMOJA NA ODM” will be held at Orange House, the ODM headquarters and will be graced by Party Leader the Rt. Hon. Raila Odinga.
500 Members of the Disability Caucus from all over Kenya have confirmed their participation in this event whose aim is to give hope to Persons with Disability that even in leadership, disability is not inability.
According to the Caucus Interim Chairman Mr. Nixon Kakiri, the forum which is the first of its kind has attracted participants from all the 47 Counties with the sole aim of forging a united front ahead of the 2017 general election.
Mr. Kakiri who has hearing impairment says “we need to be recognized. We want a leader who takes into recognition the plight of Persons with Disabilities, and that leader is Mr. Odinga”.
Mr. Odinga has been in the forefront in agitating for equal opportunities for everyone regardless of their physical status. He will be present to assure them of his support and encourage them to go for as many elective positions as possible in the forth-coming party nominations.
Members of Parliament and party officials have been invited to attend this important forum.
The breakfast meeting will start at 8:00am and will be open to the media for coverage.
