    Prime Minister Raila Odinga has promised to explore more markets for miraa (khat) to boost the income of farmers in Meru North region.


    Speaking when he toured the region on Saturday, Mr Odinga said the stimulant was not a drug and the government ought to look for more markets, especially in East Africa and Europe.

    “I will talk to my friend Mr Jakaya Kikwete of Tanzania to seek more markets there. Miraa should be sold in many more markets.

    “The twigs should not be classified as a drug. If it was a drug, our doctors would have said so,” he told residents who thronged the Maua Municipal Stadium.

    The PM also promised to link the Mwingi-Isiolo-Moyale road with Maua to help residents transport the crop faster.

    Mr Odinga was responding to appeals by area leaders who included Higher education assistant minister Kilemi Mwiria, Igembe South MP Mithika Linturi, Nyambene county council chairman Henry Mworia and former Igembe North MP Maoka Maore.

    The PM also pledged Sh700 million for the construction of a drainage system.

    Will his move stregthen the cooperation amongst the people of East Africa, Why should Oginga think the possiblity of a potential market of this deadly drug to our country. Why not Uganda or Rwanda. If this is true, then I am afraid we have timed bomb in the so called economic integration among East African countries. Wabongo tutoke usingizini tunakwenda na maji

    Kwa namna yeyote miraa ni illicit drug ambayo ina madhara kwenye ubongo wa mwanadamu. Raila ameongea kisiasa tu ili kujenga ushawishi kwa ajili ya uchaguzi ujao mwakani. Hizo ni sawa na kuwaahidi wananchi wa Bukoba kuwa utawajengea international airport wakati kile cha Mwanza tu kiko kama nyumba ya bibi kizee

    I am not the guy who pledges the banning of drugs.., hey even marijuana should maybe be sold in the pharmacies to responsible people who wants to use this drugs and if they can be responsible for their actions ..., but when Mr. Odinga says that this Mirungi has got no side effects I wonder how much research has been done....
