Raila who is known for his love of music, sang to Kyallo a popular Jamaican ballad that sent the KTN news anchor into laughter.
The NASA leader sang the Swahili version of “ Jamaica Farewell” by the Harry Belafonte during the interview at Nairobi’s Safari Park Hotel.
Raila was not shy to express his love for music as he fondly sang a verse of the Jamaican-style folk song about the beauties of the West Indian Islands that was later on translated into a Swahili version by the legendary Fadhili Williams and also songstress Mirriam Makeba.
