The 2017 General Elections will perhaps go down as the most controversial polls in the country after the one in 2007.

The elections were marred with chaos and adamancy from competing sides that led to the opposition’s presidential candidate Raila Odinga swearing himself in as the People’s President.

Despite the ceremony unusually going on uninterrupted, details have now emerged that Raila’s team had anticipated retaliation from the government and possible death.

According to Raila’s younger daughter Winnie Odinga, her dad had expected an assassination attempt on his life on the fateful day.

” On that day as I went to pick him he was like, you know this may be the last time we are seeing each other. He did want me to go with him,” Winnie told Radio Jambo’s Massawe Japani. 

Winnie also quashed the notion that controversial lawyer Miguna Miguna was the only person instrumental in Raila’s oath taking.

According to Winnie everyone present at Uhuru Park grounds on that day was key to the process.
