President Uhuru Reveals Lessons To Be Learnt From Fidel Odinga.
President Uhuru Kenyatta urged Kenyans to take a leaf out of Fidel’s book; the head of state revealed the nation could learn a lot from Fidel’s life which can be used to heal the country.
Uhuru was eulogizing Fidel during a requiem mass that was held at All Saints Cathedral when he made his remark. Unlike the usual scenario where the president reads his speech from a script, Uhuru’s words came from within him; no one made the speech for him this time round.
The head of state emphasized two important lessons Kenyans could emulate from Fidel. Uhuru disclosed Fidel knew how to cross political, religious and ethnic divides as he could reach out to anyone he wanted to. Uhuru added the deceased held no grudges.
Perhaps most important lesson that Kenyans need most and could be learnt From Fidel’s life was his ability to forge links with Kenyans from different ethnic backgrounds. “He was a person who did not use tribe or religion as a guide in building links with other people” Uhuru praised Fidel.
Uhuru further reiterated his tribute to Fidel on his Facebook page; down is what he wrote:
Deputy President William Ruto and I today joined the Odinga Family and other mourners for the requiem service of the late Fidel Odinga at All Saints Cathedral, Nairobi. We can learn a lot from Fidel’s life which we can use to heal our country. He bore no grudges. Fidel was a man who knew how to cross political, religious and ethnic divides and could reach out to anyone he wanted to. He was a person who did not use tribe or religion as a guide in building links with other people. We need less shouting at each other and more of talking with one another. May God Rest His Soul in Eternal Peace.
