1966, Jaramogi Oginga Odinga's Resignation Letter To Mzee Jomo Kenyatta That Kenyans Should Read

The office of the deputy president (formally recognized as the office of the vice president) is one of the most powerful places of work in the republic of Kenya that one can hold. The powers of this workplace comes as the 2d after that of the office of the president. Since indipendence, this office have been occupied through round 10 humans with the first one being Mr Joseph murumbi. Currently, this function is being held through Dr William Ruto.

Now, today, the widespread digital has come out to share some components of Mr Oginga Odinga's resignation letter again in the 12 months 1966. This was once a letter that was written via the father of hon Raila Odinga when he used to be resigning as the vice president of Kenya. This letter was directed to Mzee Jomo Kenyatta who was the head of state at that time.

After reading this letter, I located three most important messages that Odinga told Mzee Jomo before resigning. The first element that Oginga Odinga informed Mzee Jomo Kenyatta is that he was resigning because he (Mzee Jomo Kenyatta) by no means involved him in any kingdom affairs. According to Mr Odinga, this was once one of the painful matters that made him uncomfortable in the government.

The second factor that Oginga Odinga said is that he used to be feeling responsible of protecting the most effective role in the united states of america yet the human beings are still struggling with poverty. Due to this, Mr Oginga felt that he was once consuming the kingdom cash for nothing which according to him, it was in no way right.

Lastly, Mr Oginga Odinga stated that he used to be fearing on how the future generations will decide him due to his terrible performance in the parliament. Due to all these, Mr Oginga Odinga felt that he could not preserve the workplace of the vice president anymore and that is why he resigned.
