Why Raila Odinga Junior Has A Bent/Twisted Mouth
A few years back Hon. Raila Odinga’s son and first President Jomo Kenyatta’s grandson were injured in road accident in Nairobi. Raila Junior and Mr Joseph Muhoho were traveling in a sleek Mercedes Benz when it rammed a BMW belonging to one of their other rich friend on Valley Road at dawn. The BMW belongs to Mr Mwangi Pepe, the son of former CID Director Joseph Kamau. His passenger was identified as Mr Jeffrey Kiboro. The group had been at a popular entertainment spot in Kilimani up to about 3am when they left to regroup in town.
Muhoho escaped unhurt, but the others were injured on the hands, face and legs, according to friends and relatives who visited them in hospital yesterday. Witnesses said both vehicles were cruising at high speed when Raila Jr’s hit the BMW from behind. Pepe lost control of the car, which then veered off the road and landed in a ditch near the Integrity Centre. Both vehicles were extensively damaged and the airbags jutted out.
