"Way back in 1990 during the clamour for multipartism Lempaa Soyinka used to tell me how a genuine politician Jaramogi Oginga Odinga was.
At that time Raila was still young, in detention and fairly unknown. The father was the king of the Luo politics. But Jaramogi was a true patriot.
There were stories told in Mt Kenya that Jaramogi had asked Jomo Kenyatta to rule for mine day. But those who told us that story never told us that the same Jaramogi had refused to form government unless and until Kenyatta was released.
Those were the young leaders who brought all the changes and freedoms we are enjoying today.
There is something clear about Raila Odinga. He has the fathers spirit and heart. It's undisputed fact."
