Raila Odinga: I have forgiven Uhuru for calling me a mad man

ODM leader Raila Odinga (pictured) has narrated how he and President Uhuru Kenyatta buried the hatchet to forge a united front.

Speaking at the University of Nairobi where he met youth from Mt Kenya, Raila said he has since forgiven Uhuru for calling him muguruki, Kikuyu for a mad man.

The ODM leader continued, saying the President has also forgiven him for referring to him as a drunkard.

Raila was explaining what happened in the aftermath of the 2017 repeat presidential election that he and his team snubbed.

Following the stalemate, Raila and Uhuru on March 9, 2018, called a truce since dubbed the Handshake.

The ODM leader said he and Uhuru were locked in two meetings that lasted 13 hours and six hours before they agreed to resolve the issues.

What motivated the two to yield, Raila says, was the history that their fathers Jomo Kenyatta and Jaramogi Oginga Odinga had.

Raila said their fathers were so close that Uhuru is like his brother.
