Raila and friends surprise Kibra residents with Sh30M donation

Early Easter presents

Raila Odinga and family, BIDCO and Kenya Pipeline Corporation (KPC) surprise Kibra residents with Sh30 Million food donation

Residents of the Kibra on Thursday received a generous donation from former Prime Minister Raila Odinga and his family.

Together with BIDCO and Kenya Pipeline Corporation (KPC), the Odinga family donated foodstuffs worth Sh30 million to be distributed through government channels.

The special AU envoy's press secretary Dennis Onyango elaborated that the donation is meant to cushion the families in Kibra from the effects of Coronavirus in the country.

"Hon. Raila Odinga and Mama Ida Odinga will shortly donate an assortment of supplies to the residents of Kibra, through the Government of Kenya, to help alleviate the challenges faced by the community as a result of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic," his statement read in part.

Raila's bedroom

Kibra gained a new title during the recent by-election, being referred to as 'Raila's bedroom'.

On November 4, during the final major rally for Mr Odinga’s ODM party in Kibra, Nairobi County, the former PM popularized the term “bedroom” as a reference to his political stronghold.

“Wale wengine wanabweka, wanasema eti ‘oooh, Raila ameita watu kwa bedroom yake’. Kuna ubaya gani nikiita watu kwa bedroom yangu? Kuna makosa? Si ni marafiki unawaita kwa bedroom? Wale ni wapumbavu, hawajui siasa.

“(There are those criticizing me for inviting these leaders here saying ‘Raila has invited foreigners to his bedroom’. Is there a problem if I invite anyone to my bedroom? Is it wrong? Don’t we all call our friends to our bedrooms? Those criticizing me are fools, they don’t understand politics.),” he stated.
