Raila Odinga Turns Down Government Diplomatic Job Offer

HANDSHAKE: President Uhuru and Raila Odinga
Raila Odinga yesterday politely declined an offer by the Jubilee Government to work as an envoy explaining that his “plate is full.” Mr. Odinga said his focus is to strengthen the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) and the Coalition for Reforms and Democracy (CORD).

Raila Odinga later on urged those still sympathising with him for losing the presidency, to stop. Speaking in Khwisero constituency on Saturday during the burial of Mama Ellena Andayi, 93, mother to area lawmaker Benjamin Andola, Mr. Odinga said he was ready to soldier on despite losing the Presidency, adding he would re-organise his house.

“Do not tell me sorry for what happened, I do not wish to hear this. When a cooking stick breaks, do you stop preparing your meal? Certainly not! And that is why we want to state that we have enough work to do,” said Raila Odinga.

The meeting yesterday was important to show the people that there is no animosity between the Government and CORD. However, Raila Odinga is firmly in the opposition trenches ready to ensure services are delivered as promised to Kenyans.
