Raila's powerful statement on Christmas day 

Odinga's message comes shortly after warning about rising dictatorship in the country.

In a press statement, Odinga emphasised that though things might seem dark now, the dawn is near.

"The darkest hour is always just before the dawn' and the patience Kenyans have exercised thus far will shortly yield results as our plans are complete and our resolve very steady," part of the statement read.

The former Prime Minister pledged to fight for those who lost their loved ones in the hands of security forces during NASA demos.

"To those who have unfortunately lost their loved ones at the hands of the security forces, we shall not forget the victims and will do everything it takes to ensure that their deaths will not have been in vain.

"We promise you that next year shall be full of abundant blessings for all Kenyans," Odinga stated.
