An “ordinary mwananchi” has excited social media users after spending Sh350,000 to place an  advertisement on a national newspaper to applaud opposition leader Raila Odinga.

The mwananchi, who referred to herself as Lillian, paid for the half a page newspaper advert that appeared in the Daily Nation on Thursday.

In the advert, she thanked Mr Odinga for among other a new Constitution and devolution, revealing corruption in government and fighting injustice

Lillian also thanked the opposition leader for “restoring dignity” of the poorest and urged the 72 year-old leader not to tire, for he is already a winner.
