Details have now emerged, revealing the type of drink that Opposition Leader Raila Odinga took on Tuesday before heading to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) head offices along Kiambu Road where former Interior Cabinet Secretary Dr Fred Matiang'i was being grilled.
Raila caused a scene at the DCI headquarters after he was denied entry, which saw him issue strong threats, that he would tell his supporters to open the DCI gate by force.
It has now emerged that before he headed to DCI head offices, Raila visited Azimio lawmakers at the Parliament Building and had lunch with them.
In one of the videos that have emerged on social media, the Azimio la Umoja leader was captured enjoying a soft drink from one of the beverage companies in Kenya.
Mumias East Member of Parliament Peter Salasya took to his official social media pages and shared a video, showing Raila gulping down a glass of soda. A soda bottle was also seen beside him.
Nairobi Senator Edwin Sifuna had earlier revealed that the ODM leader paid them a courtesy call at the Senate and bought them lunch, noting that it was a big honour for the veteran politician to surprise them with lunch.
"Baba swung by Senate today and bought us lunch. Always an honour," he said
Thereafter, Raila in accompany of other leaders proceeded to the DCI head offices where former CS Dr Fred Matiangi was being grilled.
However, drama unfolded after he arrived at the head offices after he was denied entry. Raila was left angry and he threatened that he would order his supporters to open the gate by force.
According to Raila, the DCI headquarters is a public office and any Kenyan has a right to access to it.
