ODM party leader Raila Odinga on Saturday sung Redemption song as he rallied Kenyans to vote for him.

"We are on the verge of a great victory. I, Raila Amolo Odinga, have seen Canaan; the land of milk and honey. The land of “…No woman, No cry”. I have seen the Promised Land; the land of The Redemption Song," he said.

Raila sang: “but my hand was made strong,...by the hand of the almighty, we forward in this generation… triumphantly..."

"Won’t you help to sing, these songs of freedom, Cause all I ever had Redemption songs... But we know “…the battle is hardest, when victory is nearest”.

Raila urged Kenyans to get ready and keep the spirit of “Alutta Continua.”

"Next Tuesday, all Azmio followers have to be at their polling stations by 6 am and cast their vote. August 9th marks the 7th multi-party election in Kenya. Historically, the number 7 is a symbol of completion and new beginnings," he said.

Redemption Song" is a song by Bob Marley. It is the final track on Bob Marley & the Wailers' ninth album, Uprising, produced by Chris Blackwell and released by Island Records.

The song is considered one of Marley's greatest works.

Raila said by voting in our next deputy president, Madam Martha Wangari Karua will have a complete army to fight for Kenyans.

"Martha is a freedom fighter, she has stood for the rights of the people of Kenya and has paid a price for it," Raila said.
