He went ahead to add that he had however forgiven Moi who has gone down in history as Kenya’s longest serving president.

ODM leader Raila Odinga was detained for fighting for multi partism during Moi’s era.

“He was human and made great contributions, but like many individuals, he had weaknesses and I was one of the victims. But he was forgiving like I am forgiving… We made our peace and we shook hands and worked together to bring this country a new Constitution,”  Raila stated.

Raila took the chance to advocate for Kenyans to support the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) report citing that it will be a continuation of his legacy.
