Nairobi Lawyer Donald Kipkorir Pens Touching Letter to NASA Leader Raila Odinga

  • Flamboyant city lawyer Donald Kipkorir has penned a letter to National Super Alliance (NASA) leader Raila Odinga ahead of the announcing of Presidential results and many Kenyans have been left in awe.

    In the letter, Mr Kipkorir hails Odinga as one of the people who fought for Kenya's multiparty democracy but urges him to accept the outcome of the election even if it is flawed for the good of the nation. 

    "Baba, no matter the outcome of the presidential elections, your place in the History of our country is cast in stone.

    "...No other leader, bar President Daniel Arap Moi has mentored leaders across the country. Personally, I wanted you to be President and I voted for you. Many conveniently forget that without you, Kenya wouldn't have been a multi party democracy," read part of the letter.

    The lawyer also commended Odinga's efforts of standing for a credible electoral process.

    "With time, our electoral process is getting better each election year... Kenya is a beacon of democracy, thanks to you.

    "Not being our President doesn't diminish your contribution. Many have become great without occupying a political office," it read in part.

    Kipkorir further urged the Opposition leader to continue in his quest for democracy and ensuring all Kenyans were treated equally.

    "Make sure that no region, no tribe, no individual is left behind. Make sure that no one will be discriminated because of tribe," he wrote.

    "I urge you that if IEBC declares Uhuru Kenyatta as re-elected, take the high road and place a call to him. Take the high road and accept the results even if flawed," he stated.

    Here is the post that drew a lot of reactions from Kenyans.
