ODM Party Leader Raila Odinga and Bomet Governor Isaac Rutto will lead a small Kenyan delegation to the United Kingdom to preside over the launch of a new book on the late former Deputy Speaker Jean Marie Seroney.
Hon. JM Seroney, as Deputy Speaker, is remembered for having been hauled to jail by validating former Butere MP Martin Shikuku’s claims, on the floor of parliament, that KANU was dead. It was the hight of KANU tyranny.
In the delegation are other former detainees Koigi wa Wamere, Gitobu Imanyara and Prof. Ngugi wa Thiong’o. Tindiret MP Julius Kibiwot Melly will also attend the event.
The new book has been authored by Kenyan scholar Godfrey Sang.
