Raila indicated to mourners at the burial ceremony of former Gem MP Jakoyo Midiwo on Saturday that the BBI legal team is ready to try to overturn the High Court judgment that declared the BBI program unlawful.
"We're optimistic that we'll succeed thanks to this capable team." “The BBI will move forward,” he stated.
As the BBI legal team works till the wee hours of the morning, the former premier declared that the James Orengo-led battery of lawyers will deliver victory to bring back reggae.
Orengo, who is also a Senator from Siaya, echoed the comments. “Reggae is making a comeback, and we're going to Canaan.”
The late Midiwo's funeral brought to the forefront ODM party tensions and infighting following shambolic nominations that resulted in the deceased missing the party ticket to retake his seat.
“We hope that in the coming elections, we will have a proper nomination process that will satisfy all of our members....and these recommendations have been made available to our people,” Raila said.
Midiwo's family said their final goodbyes to a guy they considered as a breadwinner and father.
Earlier in the day, police struggled to keep mourners away from the venue. In vain, law enforcement was obliged to use tear gas to remove the grieving.
