Raila is human like you - Makueni man told after trembling before Baba [Video]
Duncan Musau had been asked to address a gathering at Chungwa House
Musau, the Organizing Secretary of Mashabiki Self-help Group was visibly uneasy during his short address at a meet-and-greet hosted by the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party leader at Chungwa House on Tuesday.
With a shaky voice, a stutter and unplanned pauses, Musau introduced the leadership of the group seeming to want to get it over and done with in the shortest time possible.
In his opening remarks, Mr Musau indicated that most of the persons in his group had felt honoured to have been invited to the function and most had never been in the presence of such dignitaries.
The nervous presentation attracted an encouraging comment from the day's moderator, who pointed out that Mr Odinga is human, urging Musau not be afraid of speaking to the presidential-hopeful.
"Kile ambacho ningependa kumwambia ndungu yangu Duncan Musau ni kwamba Mheshimiwa Raila Odinga ni binadamu kama wewe kwa hivo hupaswi kubabaika unapozungumza.
"(The only thing I'd like to tell my brother Musau is that the Honourable Raila Odinga is a human being just like you, there's no need to tremble when you speak to him)," the moderator, ODM Communications Director Philip Etale advised.
ODM Secretary-General Edwin Sifuna later took Musau to shake hands with the former Prime Minister and shared a laugh with the aspiring president.

Raila's 2022 bid for the Presidency
The former PM popularized his bid for the presidency come 2022 during the meeting with the group from the Lower Easter region of Kenya.
While speaking on Mr Odinga's campaign, ODM party Chairman John Mbadi emphasized that the #AzimioLaUmoja tag summarizes it - he is campaigning for a united Kenya.
One of the key points his opponents have raised has been on whether the 76-year-old is likely to become president has been his popularity among voters in Mt Kenya.
