Raila Odinga Posts TBT Photos, Other Politicians Follow
Opposition Party leader Raila Odinga lit up social media with past photos of himself, inspiring other high profile Kenyans to follow suit.
The former Prime Minister posted two images of his youthful days during the cold war in Germany.
The first image shows Raila hanging out alone while the second image shows him catching a train.
Acknowledging the former PM’s agenda-setting trait, Jeff Nyakang’o commented, “Baba if at all you say I should sneeze, I will do it with immediate effect without even bothering to know the reason.”
Nairobi Senator Johnson Sakaja, following Odinga’s lead, also posted throwback photos of himself.
“Baba amesema leo ni ma TBT. This is 21 years ago during the International Children’s Debate on the Environment,” Sakaja captioned his photos.
In the first photo, the senator was dressed as a Zulu attire representing South Africa.
The second image showed Sakaja receiving an award from the late Francis Nyenze who was the then Environment Minister. 15 years later, Sakaja joined him in the National Assembly.
Nairobi Woman Representative Esther Passaris was not left behind as she too posted a picture of her 25-year-old self, captioned, “What advice would you give to your 25-year-old self?”
Meru Governor Kiraitu Murungi also joined in the trend by posting an undated photo of himself speaking at a public function, captioned, “Tumetoka mbali (We’ve come a long way)!”
