Raila under fire after posting this photo

Raila has been accused of crafting the ouster of Moses Wetangula from Senate

In a post across his social media channels, Mr Odinga revealed that the US ambassador had visited him in his Capitol Hill offices in Nairobi.

“We discussed the national reconciliation initiative and how there can be no progress without justice. The US has pledged to support us as we proceed with the task of righting the wrongs that have ailed us for far too long,” Mr Odinga posted.

Hundreds of Kenyans who follow the Opposition Chief criticised the meeting between the two, faulting Mr Odinga of playing double standards, while others praised his resilience in reconciliation with the US, even after Godec castigated the swearing-in ceremony of January 30.

One Hussler Sonko on Facebook told off Mr Odinga that he once said the US could not be trusted, and wondered why the former Premier had turned against his own vows.

“I mean former you told us that the US cannot be trusted and should keep off Kenyan affairs,, I just asking did this US change from America one to United Siaya?” Hussler posed to Mr Odinga.

Another follower, Roy Ombija, added that Mr Odinga’s acts portrayed a high level of hypocrisy.

“This is the apex of hypocrisy...As a staunch supporter, I never ever in my wildest of dreams imagined saying this against Raila Amolo Odinga.

“At this rate you’re watering down your legacy in gushes Sir...me wonders who is next in line on your appointments - Chebukati and Chiloba? My allegiance is leaning more towards Miguna Miguna by every passing day,” Ombija said.

Thomas Isoka Chebai wrote: “Next you should meet Chebukati and Chiloba, Cambridge Analytica, Morpho yes just keep on meeting all of them I'm currently battling depression courtesy to your silly political maneuvers punctuated by yourself interests. You have christened yourself Joshua I hear by christen you as new day 'Okwonkwo'. Your inability to grab power sulks.”

Supporters

Equally, his staunch supporters praised his latest move to have talks with the US representative, nearly two weeks after meeting his political emissaries President Uhuru Kenyatta.

Denis Owino Wuod Awasi wrote to Mr Odinga; “Congratulations Raila Amolo Odinga, the handshake has brought more good than harm, but you have taken too long to recognise Uhuru Kenyatta as a legitimate President of Kenya. You would have done after 26th repeat Presidential Election and you would have saved more lives.”

Another follower, Apostle Sam Onduru said: “For the first time I support you; you are brilliant here than on the streets. Kindly agree with PR Kenyatta well so that the two of you mend the walls your fathers broken in this nation for reasons only known to then in the graves. may their souls rest in peace.”

He added: “The problem of Kenya is honestly your families, just the Odinga and Kenyatta family. I think you won't arrest me for this because you also all the times tells people hard facts.”
