Hon Raila Odinga was the talk of the town after he was recorded dancing a Gikuyu praise song on the Azimio la Mama podium.
The ODM Party leader and presidential hopeful, Raila Amollo Odinga, was in high spirits when he recently hosted a group of women from Mt Kenya.
During the meeting, the AU special envoy for infrastructure and development, Raila, who was dressed in his signature Kaunda suit and hat, put aside all his troubles and danced with the women, proving that age is just a number.
The crowd cheered ‘Baba’ as he displayed his unique dancing skills.
Here’s the video that was shared by an account that alleges to be a Cyprian Nyakundi‘s fan account

He knows where they are that's right. What he does not know is that one is being readied for him.

If he had really invested in Kenyans & not ran for handshake behind the scenes, he wouldn't have to go through the campaign mzunguko & unnecessary jumping to woo voters
A press release would be enough to keep citizens in the know on his move
Some decisions are costly I tell you

ODM leader Raila Odinga on Friday vowed to fight corruption, saying that he knows where loopholes are. Speaking in Makueni during another of the Azimio la Umoja consultative forums, Raila said that Kenya loses a lot of money to unscrupulous people.
“I know where there are loopholes. I have been Prime Minister of Kenya and I will seal all of them. If you don’t empower them they become drunkards, drug addicts and criminals. They basically become a drug on society, but if they are properly empowered, given proper educated and skills they become a source for wealth creation in our nation, a great resource for our country,” he said.
He added that Kenya is working towards its third liberation – economic liberation, and this is where the youth have a huge role to play.
He insisted that young people need to be empowered with skills and given money to start and grow SMEs, adding that this is something he intends to do.
“Kenyans don’t want cooked fish, they want to know how to fish so that they can walk with pride as a proud people,” Raila said.
