Why did Raila skip Mama Lucy Kibaki's burial?

09 May 2016, 11:22

Nairobi - Opposition leader, Raila Odinga's seat at Mama Lucy Kibaki's funeral remained conspicuously empty after he failed to show up for the state function.

Other dignitaries who were missing at the burial of the former First Lady were Kalonzo Musyoka, Moses Wetang’ula as well as the former President Daniel Toroitich arap Moi.

Raila Odinga’s absence raised questions on why he skipped the burial, with some claiming it was because of the murder of his close associate, Jacob Juma.

However, it has emerged that Raila was at a thanksgiving ceremony for the Kajiado Central MP Elijah Memusi on the day Lucy was laid to rest.
