A 10-year-old girl stole the stage at former Prime Minister Raila Odinga’s engagement session with Kenyans residing in the United Kingdom (UK) after delivering a brilliant Swahili poetry.

Natasha Macharia complimented Raila’s leadership while performing her poetry, saying that his victory in the August 9 elections will bring about the much-needed transformation in the country.

Following her presentation, Natasha earned a standing ovation from the audience, who were blown away by her ability, eloquence, and great message delivery.

“All Kenyans believe that you will head to State House. Congratulations Raila Odinga. We believe that once you get to power, you will bring an end to neo-colonialism and improve our economy.

“Our education and infrastructure will also be exemplary. Congratulations our leader,” she recited.

Raila, who was seated at the platform with other Kenyan officials, after the performance, requested the 10-year-old to sit next to him.

Former Gatanga Member of Parliament Peter Kenneth and Kitui Governor Charity Ngilu watched on as the two conversed.

In addition, in his speech, the former Prime Minister lavished admiration on Natasha, expressing his awe at her brilliance.

“I have met a new friend called Natasha and she is a wonderful girl. She is very bright and intelligent at only 10-years-old.

“You can only imagine that in eight years’ time, she is going to be a voter and she will be making demands from the people of Kenya. At that time she will be expecting that the country will be expecting her,” he stated.
