Prime Minister Raila Odinga today met with renown novelist who paid him a courtesy call at his upper hill office. Thiongo is in the country for a number of activities.
Prof Thiongo and Dr Raila are long term friends who share a lot in common especially during Moi era when they were both unlawfully detained, tortured and exiled. Raila is also a writer with a number of titles to his name, “FLAME OF FREEDOM” included. So, it was not only a meeting of political friends but also a meeting of writers.
Thiongo shared a number of his books with the former premier. He was accompanied with his five children who are also writers. Ngugi who was in a jovial mood said his friendship with Raila is beyond anyone’s imagination. He said he will continue to stand with the opposition supremo in his quest for a better Kenya.
