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.

She has beaten me to it. I could as well do the same. I am proud of this great son of Kenya.
