Raila Odinga has urged his supporters to be patient with him even as he would provide key directions on reforms in the country in the near future.
Speaking in Siaya County on Friday, October 29, he explained that he resorted to silence since President William Ruto’s inauguration to ponder on his next move.
He urged his critics to desist from speaking on his retirement, stating that he would exit the political arena at the right time.
“When my time to retire from politics comes, I will peacefully exit the stage. There shouldn’t be any discussion about that. Our focus now should be reforming the politics of this country so that democracy may thrive,” Raila said.
He further reiterated that he had not given up on fighting for Kenyans, adding that he would drop a bombshell that would heavily impact the politics in the country.
“Do not give up. Be strong because I am not yet tired. Should I give up or continue? I will give directions on the path we shall take when the time is right.
“Going forward, we want to bring change to our people so that Kenyans can live a comfortable life. That is what service to the nation is all about,” he stated.
Further, he refuted claims that he was seeking to benefit from his silence and political statements.
“It is not for Raila or Ida to get something out of it. We can still stay like this and life will move on. So, the things we are doing are not just because we want to get something. We must see change,” the ODM boss defended himself.
