Raila-mania suffer most than Raila-phobia

By Nesh Kinyua | July 29th 2017

NASA flag-bearer Raila Odinga has confirmed that those people who are his die-hards go through a lot of pain than those who hate him for no good reason.

Going by the words of the late vice president Michael Kijana Wamalwa, who described Mr Odinga as a two-faced coin, who is loved equally and hated with the same gravity, Mr Odinga loosely denied the allegations.

"Raila Odinga is loved and hated equally. People are sick of Railamania and Railaphobia." Said Kijana Wamalwa.

Speaking in an interview with Betty Kyalo hosted in Serena Hotel in Nairobi, Mr Odinga said his fans are more than his enemies. "I have many people who love me than those who hate me," stated Mr Odinga.

The challenge of proving the said theory is to identify where he is loved most and where his enemies reside since he receives no resistance in areas where he dwells.

"It is hard to tell where am loved most and where am hated since am equally welcomed wherever I go." echoed Odinga.

He also narrated what his detention life was like in Manyani, the lighting being the main reason for his eye problem. "The light was so high at the ceiling unbearable for one to strain for long." He said.

According to Raila, it is hard for the young generation to understand and appreciate his effort and contribution towards the liberation of the country.

More so, he said his rivalry is neither enmity nor personal but just positive criticism on issues that affect the society. "Nothing personal just positive criticism for the benefit of the Kenyans." insisted Mr Odinga.
