ODM leader Raila Odinga addressed the crowd at Nyayo Stadium saying that he was indeed a victim of Moi’s rule.
He continued by saying how human Moi was and that he had weaknesses but they forgave each other during the famous handshake at his Kabarak home.
“Moi and I shared a strong belief in forgiveness. I was a victim of his rule but we forgave each other, shook hands and agreed to work together for Kenya.
