Raila said he began the tradition of writing down his wishes for this country while in detention: “For those of you who may not know, detention is a miserable place with time mostly spent alone. You are completely alone for 23 out of 24 hours of the day. In those days, it would sometimes take six months to pass letters between my loved ones and myself. “With a lot of time on my hands, I used to write down the many wishes I had for the people of Kenya. Every time I visit, I take one of those wishes and place it on the wall.” Raila’s visit created a sensation on the social media immediately he posted his photos deep in prayers under #RailaVisitsWesternWall and #RailainIsrael.
