Brian Mutiga took the opportunity to apolofize for not supporting Raila’s 2022 bid stating that he had been misled by politicians writing:

“Happy Birthday Raila Odinga/Baba. I hated you because our politicians in Central told us to. I failed to vote for you in 2017 & 2022 because I was told if you win, you were going to take our lands & chase us away in Nairobi. I’m sorry Baba. I wish you another year full of happiness, success, joy & good health. Happy Birthday Baba.”
