He referred to Odinga as a patriot that fought for Kenya’s multi partism and a selfless leader that has mentored others leaders across the country.
”Many conveniently forget that without you, Kenya wouldn’t have been a multi party democracy. Moi, was there before Yoweri Museveni and Robert Mugabe. Hadn’t you made possible for Kenya to be multi-party, Moi will still be President now. Your father also made sure that Jomo Kenyatta became our first Prime Minister then President.”
”You have been abused, ridiculed and delegitimized. You have been caricatured. Even fake websites were set up to create false stories about you. You have been made the bogeyman in every General Elections,” he continued.
Kipkorir also urged Odinga to accept the election outcome no matter how flawed.
”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. Am not in any way saying we should encourage electoral fraud. But at times in life, we make decisions for a bigger good. Lord Jesus, said that unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a single seed, but if it dies it produces many seeds. In subordinating our individual dreams, we open opportunities for many others.”
