We've been sold fear for decades – Raila says after meeting with Kikuyu Council of Elders

Former Prime Minister, Raila Odinga has said that for a long time, the country has been sold fear, and it’s time Kenya embraces love and peace.

Speaking after a meeting with the Kikuyu Council of Elders, the ODM leader said this is the journey he has chosen, and went on to ask if Kenyans are willing to join.

Raila Odinga mentioned that he had a good time hosting the elders at his home for a meal, where they had a conversation about moving the country forward.

I enjoyed a thoughtful discussion at my home over a meal with members of the Kikuyu Council of Elders led by their Chair Wachira Kiago. A conversation about moving our Country forward not on the patchy path of tribal lines that have and continue to occasion annihilation.

We've been sold fear for decades; it’s time that as a people and a Nation we embraced LOVE and PEACE. This is the journey we are embarking on, are you willing to join us as we SIT down and TALK candidly? Nī gatho nī gūcera,” said Odinga.

Present at the meeting was Peter Kenneth, Oburu Odinga, Jeremiah Kioni among others.
