As much as his rivals would like to downplay his influence over Kenyans, it is time to accept the fact that ODM leader Raila Odinga is a force to reckon with.
Apart from the second coming of Christ, there is no one else’s arrival that has gotten Kenyans waiting with baited breathe more than the return of Baba from Dubai.
His ‘foe’ Miguna Miguna came close, but we all know we just wanted to see how President Uhuru Kenyatta would handle the situation, but for Baba, it is different: People actually miss his presence in the country. He is the politician that many hate to love.
The good news is that he is only two days away from returning home after successful treatment in the Middle Eastern country.
It will not be a surprise to find his supporters flocking the airport to welcome him back home, despite the risk of contracting coronavirus, but as earlier said, this is Baba; after Christ, fear Baba.
Sadly, we will only celebrate him for a few hours before the country goes back to pinning all problems on him and shooting down his ideas and ambitions.
