He claims that the former Prime Minister who is also the Orange Democratic Movement ODM party leader and opposition leader has retired from politics but has to keep himself busy.

He claims that has only tiny grandchildren to look after and some cows. He has gone round the world. He has gotten every shilling he ever needed. He has the mass following and hence has got nothing to gain or lose.

He notes that Raila Odinga will ensure that he keeps the government of the day very busy and the greatest mistake that President Ruto will make is to try and intimidate Raila Odinga.

"Someone said, if there will be demos soon, they will be attended not because Raila will have called for them but because people want to vent. I may not participate but don't underestimate Raila's mobilisation."Wahome Thuku.
