Raila adds another feather to his cap


Odinga will be awarded an honorary degree from the public university, making it the fourth honorary degree.

In a public advert published on Tuesday, Jaramogi Oginga Odinga University said the ODM leader was honored for his exemplary service to humanity.

"The university charter believes Raila ascribes to the values of the learning institution and has rendered distinguished service in the advancement of any branch of learning or service to humanity.”
