Raila To Get Nairobi Road Renamed After Him in New Motion

Former Prime Minister Raila Odinga is set to get a road named after him in a motion sponsored by Nairobi County Assembly Minority Whip Peter Imwatok.⁣

Imwatok is scheduled to move the motion in the week starting Monday, September 20 to renamed Mbagathi Way after the ODM leader.⁣

He said that Odinga kickstarted the construction of Mbagathi Way during his tenure as Lang’ata MP and Minister of Roads and Public Works.⁣

“We should appreciate deserving leaders while they are still alive [rather than] when they die,” Imwatok told the house.⁣

“It pains me that people who didn’t do anything to impact the society positively are being appreciated more than those who sacrificed including by giving their own life for the good of our country,” he added.⁣

The Makongeni MCA argued that Odinga’s contibution to the nation deserved recognition.⁣

He also said that the ODM leader fought for democracy and liberation of the country as well as maintaining peace through partnerships with former President Mwai Kibaki and President Uhuru Kenyatta.⁣
