Cord leader Raila Odinga has launched a personal website that will be his “centre of interaction” with Kenyans.

Raila clarified that the site was for sharing insights, not campaigning for the 2017 presidential election.

“Campaigns are not on my mind as I launch this website. I cannot start campaigning now for 2017, I don’t even know if I will be alive,” he said during the launch at Panafric Hotel, Nairobi on Friday.

“I am only responding to the needs of the time. I am launching my website for the interest of the youth. I am creating a platform where I can talk with young people.”

Noting that the experience of the old and the vivacity of the youth are needed, Raila said he will share his dreams and beliefs about Kenya and the world.

“Through this website you will be able to keep up with my latest news, video, pictures and speeches. You can know my personal life and that of my family,” he said.

He said he and other Kenyans will get to know each other better and learn about the country, Africa and the world.
