Former Kenyan leader Raila Amollo Odinga engaged Nairobi citizens for the first time. The former prime minister is on his first public outreach tour since losing the August 9, 2002, presidential election.
After receiving an invitation from Gaucho, the former prime minister visited the legendary people's parliament that was hosted at Nairobi's Jivanjee Gardens. It was mandatory for Raila Odinga to attend. Along alongside him were Paul Onigiri, aka Babu Owino, a member of parliament from the Orange Democratic Movement, and Phelix Odiwuor, a member of parliament from Lang'ata.
Raila spoke about recent election events during the meeting, focusing primarily on the independent electoral and borders commission and the courts. After the meeting, Raila walked through Nairobi's streets, waving to bystanders as he went.
Former Nairobi governor Mike Sonko expressed his displeasure with Raila's activities today and urged President William Ruto to provide Raila employment in the same way that he did for Uhuru Kenyatta.
