In vintage Raila mode, our former prime minister Raila Odinga gave a statesman speech cum lecture at the Woodrow Wilson Center earlier today, giving his vision for Africa next 50 years while touching on hot topics in both his supporters’ and enemies’ minds and that’s the elections many believe he won but was yet again the victim of electoral theft.
In his view, Raila said he knows he won but has had to accept the Supreme Court’s verdict to the contrary for the sake of peace for our country and that’s the mark of a statesman.
Listen for yourself what the man had to say and you’ll agree with me why it’s apt to say what I have in the title of this blog.
Or take an Alka Seltzer in the event you’re having an upset stomach over this man’s unparalleled enigmatic ability in the whole of Africa save for a few others like him he shall share the stature for life.
I am here talking about the likes of Nelson Mandela, Kwame Nkrumah, Patrick Lumumba and others who put dealing with the needs and suffering of their people ahead of everything else as proven by their individual and painful sacrifices.
