ODM leader Raila Odinga was the chief guest during the memorial mass of eight pupils who perished in the Precious Talent School tragedy on Monday, September 23, 2019.
Raila who also delivered President Uhuru’s 1 million contribution as well as his own of similar amount called on the county authorities to step up their game and ensure all buildings meet standards for human habitation.
But the photo everyone is talking about is that of Raila hugging a little girl who had just recited a moving poem.
” In the morning of September 23, a normal day it was to you all, not knowing it was the last day for you in this life. In one brief moment you all slipped away into the next life,” said the girl in the poem.
In the viral video, Raila is moved by the poem and offers the girl a comforting hug as Dagoretti South MP John Kiarie looks down in pain.
The photo which was uploaded on Raila’s Facebook account touched many Kenyans.
