Raila Odinga bids his Nyanza people goodbye leaving them emotional


Azimio One Kenya alliance leader Raila Odinga was yesterday in Migori county after declaring the mass action plan against the Keys Kwanza government.


He rallied his supporters to come out and show defiance to the government led by William Ruto whom he claims colluded with the then IEBC chairperson Wafula Chebukati to deny him victory.


While in Migori, he told his supporters that he is determined to go for what he believes is good for all Kenyans and he doesn’t care what might be awaiting him. He said that the Migori rally might be his last visit to Nyanza alive as he will go head-on with the government on 20th March.



Raila told his followers that he doesn’t know what lies ahead but he will stop at nothing in rebelling against President Ruto.

In his message, the former Prime Minister said it might take a long time to return to Migori or any part of Luo Nyanza – his traditional political bastion – and even worse, he may never go back alive.

He explained that the journey he is undertaking is enormous, rigorous and risky but worth it. He said if it means losing his life, so be it.

“Jothurwa (My home people), today is my last day to be with you in Nyanza. From now, i like the proverbial Luo girl Wagunda who was throne to crocodiles to save her people from ravaging famine…

“I am going to the crocodiles to save my people as well. Either I’ll come back a live or will be eaten by the crocodiles. But i assure you i will go,” he said.

He stated that March 20 might be the most defining day of his life.
