Please tell a story about a time when a person or organization tried to help someone or change something in your community:

The Mistaken Fight

I tell a story of our right honorable Prime minister Raila Odinga. Mr. Odinga once went out to lobby for reservation of the Mau forest. He preached about encroachment of that important water catchment area and also spereheaded for eviction of illegal land owners in the forest. To my view Mr. Odinga has completely done us pride by ensuring that we do suffer from diverse climatic setbacks. He only showed that he had the heart of Kenyans at heart.He even had to brush shoulders persuasively with his political friends who turned foes. Surprisingly many still did not realize this they allowed themselves to be manipulated especially by selfish leaders taking the prime minister as one who did not consider humanity. This was a total like and those who hate Mr Odinga for this is not a faithful citizen.
