While speaking in Luo dialect during the send-off of Dr Odhiambo Olel in Kabondo, former Prime Minister Raila Odinga recounted how he suffered for the Kenyan people by ensuring that the constitutional amendments granting Kenyans the right to freedom of rights were implemented formally.
Additionally, the former prime minister stated that he was tortured by several government agencies for his support for the deceased's political movement and their battle for freedom. "Raila Odinga: We are in the midst of the third revolution," the former prime minister remarked.
"This is the youth revolution, and we want to ensure that young people play a vital role in the country's economic development."
Mr. Odinga further alluded to his dispute with President DP Ruto, implying that DP Ruto intended to eliminate him from politics by deposing the ODM party leadership. The former Prime Minister's decision to expose the DP Ruto plans and what the government did to him moved the mourners to tears as they empathized with the former Prime Minister's anguish and suffering.
