ODM Leader Raila Odinga was conspicuously missing during Thursday’s National Prayer Breakfast at Parliament Buildings.
With the recent developments that have seen the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) process rocked, Kenyans and some political pundits had started insinuating that maybe President Uhuru and Raila have fallen out.
Raila reveals whereabouts during prayer breakfast
But few hours after the event, the former prime minister has explained why he missed the event that saw Deputy President William Ruto sharing a podium with his boss, President Uhuru- a rarity of late.
It appears that he snubbed the prayer breakfast so as to meet his friend, former UNCTAD Secretary-General Mukhisa Kituyi, if what he has posted on his Twitter handle is anything to go by.
“Spent part of the day catching up with Dr Mukhisa Kituyi and his wife at their residence. We compared notes and exchanged views on several topical issues. Good seeing this family,” says the former premier.
