Mwai Kibaki: Did Late President’s Grandson Refuse to Shake Raila’s Hand?

A video of late former President Mwai Kibaki’s grandson seemingly snubbing ODM leader Raila Odinga has emerged sparking reactions. 

The former Prime Minister was part of mourners who joined the Kibaki family for the late leader’s final farewell at Othaya Approved School.

Raila arrived at the function alongside his wife, Mama Ida Odinga and went straight to Kibaki’s coffin where he performed his famous ritual where he waves a black flywhisk. 

He then turned to the family greeting Kibaki’s most popular son, Jimmy Kibaki alongside his siblings including Judy Wanjiku. 

However, when the ODM leader got to one of Kibaki’s grandsons, the young man turned away making it obvious that he was ignoring the presidential hopeful. 

The young man pulled the stunt as Raila’s bodyguard kept a keen eye on him. 

The video sparked mixed reactions across social media and below are some comments sampled on the same. 

@kibondi: It is written and it is well known that Raila frustrated Kibaki’s government and the 1st people it hurt most was his family the wounds are still fresh they cannot be erased.
