Thursday September 15, 2016 – Former Prime Minister Raila Odinga sparked controversy in Narok after he refused to stand in respect of President Uhuru Kenyatta at the burial of former Minister William Ole Ntimama.
Raila was not bothered to stand as is required after Uhuru finished his speech in which he tore him apart at the funeral.
All others who attended the burial, including former Vice President Kalonzo Musyoka and Moses Wetangula, stood up on their as the President made his way back to his seat after the speech, which was not so friendly to the Opposition, but Raila remained seated.
The former PM may have been provoked by Uhuru’s speech, where he mocked him and the Opposition for salivating over his seat.
Uhuru particularly told Raila and his team to stop meddling in Jubilee’s affairs and instead focus on putting their house in order.
He also told the former PM that he was not ready to relinquish the Presidency to him any time soon – something that may have hurt Raila to the core considering that he is planning to have the last stab at the Presidency.
