The former Prime Minister who snubbed the campaigns attended a thanksgiving ceremony of National Police Service Commission Commissioner Dr Alice Twala in Bondo.

In the by-elections, ODM's Chris Karan suffered a loss to former MP David Ochieng who was vying on the Movement for Democracy and Growth (MDG) party ticket.

Raila used the platform to endorse the ongoing Huduma Namba registration, calling upon residents to get themselves registered with the new digital system.

He also urged residents not to be fooled by the many baseless claims being peddled by people opposed to the registration, and trust the government.

"We know there are a number of people who have not registered because of people spreading false information about the system because they don't understand," Raila was quoted by the Standard.

On the graft purge, the ODM leader said the fight is not targeting anyone as is being claimed by a section of politicians from the ruling Jubilee Party.

He took issue with the increasing number of fundraisers in the country, saying that the harambees are being used by the corrupt to share their loot with the beneficiaries.

"We are not targeting any individual or community when talking about corruption and we have noticed with a lot of concern that harambees are used to embrace corruption," he said.
