The country is in sad mode. We are mourning the demise of the second president of the republic of Kenya. But there are some secrets that you might want to know about Raila Odinga.
As all leaders went to pay their last respect to the longest serving president, the 105 years old Daniel Toroitich Arap Moi, The ODM leader Raila Amolo Odinga could not be left behind.
Have you guys noticed that ‘baba’ went with the symbol of power that was left to him by his father Jaramogi Oginga Odinga? Now you know. That symbol has a very deep meaning.
During Moi’s regime, Raila found himself under law enforcers so many times for what Raila termed as fighting for human rights. Moi hated anyone who tried to fight him in any way.
Before Jaramogi’s death, he called Raila and gave him his symbol of power. Jaramogi was using it to greet people ” Haraaambee”. That something that looks like a cow’s tail.
Raila promised his dad that, he will one day lead this country. We saw that, Odinga carried that symbol of power when viewing Moi’s body and that means that, he is ready to take over the power from 2022.
