Lawyer Ahmednasir Advice to Raila after Declaring Presidential Bid -

Lawyer Ahmednasir Abdullahi says he would offer Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party leader legal advice on a pro bono basis for the torture he underwent during the Moi era.

The lawyer said Odinga went through a lot to protect the interest of the country and needed to be awarded.

“Hon Raila…the inhuman torture you suffered under Moi entitles to a legal redress in the High Court and an award in damages,” said the lawyer.

He, however, said that the award would only be enough for Odinga but nothing beyond it like the presidency. He offered to take up the matter to the High Court, but ridiculed that race to State House for Odinga was farfetched.

“I’m willing to represent you pro bono in the High Court to get you justice…lakini mambo ya State House ni different bwana!”


Abdullahi enjoys close ties with Deputy President William Ruto who will be facing Odinga for the State House race in 2022.

This happened after the ODM boss declared his bid for the presidency at Kasarani Stadium, Nairobi where he unveiled the Azimio La Umoja Movement.

Odinga walked Kenyans down the memory lane recounting his sufferings in the struggle for multipartysm.

“The tears from the torture chambers are still running as you can tell from the handkerchief that never leaves from my hand,” Raila narrated.

The stadium was full of Kenyans from different parts of the country and was also graced by high dignitaries from the government, including some Cabinet Secretaries.
