BY JOAN WANJIKU,NAIROBI,13TH APRIL,2021-Kanu chairman Gideon Moi on Tuesday visited ODM party leader Raila Odinga at his Karen home in Nairobi.Moi was accompanied by Muhoho Kenyatta, who is the younger brother of President Uhuru Kenyatta.
On his Twitter account, Moi said the visit was to check on Raila’s recovery from the coronavirus which he contracted last month. The ODM leader later tested negative for Covid-19 late last month.
“I am deeply impressed by The Rt. Hon. Raila Odinga’s quick and steady recovery; a clear indication of his resilience even in the face of adversity. We wish him good health, long life and boundless joy as one of our country’s foremost patriots,” Moi said.
This comes barely two weeks after Raila announced that he was Covid-free.
Raila had tested positive for the virus on March 11 when he checked into Nairobi Hospital for a series of tests after complaining of fatigue when he returned from a gruelling five-day tour of the Coast region where he had drummed up support for BBI.
After testing negative, the ODM leader said that he will be taking the Covid vaccine as a way of boosting Kenyans’ confidence in the jab.
The meeting between the two comes as the country continues to witness new political realignments ahead of the 2022 General Election.
Kanu is among the four parties that have come together to form the One Kenya Alliance.
Other members of One Kenya Alliance include Wiper led by Kalonzo Musyoka, ANC of Musalia Mudavadi, and the Ford Kenya led by Bungoma Senator Moses Wetangula.
