Raila surprises KTN’s Betty Kyalo (Video)

Betty Kyalo hosted Raila during the Friday Briefing show.

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.

During the show, the NASA leader was presented a portrait of himself by artist Onkendi as he urged Kenyans to maintain peace before, during and after the August 8 elections.

"I wish my brother Uhuru Kenyatta all the best in his campaigns. If he beats me I will congratulate him. If I beat him, he should congratulate me, but we will remain friends," Raila said.
