City Lawyer Donald B Kipkorir says he has not abandoned Raila Odinga and has no plans of abandoning the ODM leader any time soon. Taking to twitter on Tuesday morning, the renown attorney affirmed on a sabbatical and had taken a leave from discussing local politics.
”I have taken Sabbatical Leave from discussing local politics. I haven’t abandoned Baba & have no plans to. I have never belonged to any Political Party ever, not even when KANU was the only Party. And I will never ever join a political party,” the lawyer wrote after Kenyans interpreted his previous tweet to mean decamping from supporting Mr. Odinga.
On Monday, Mr. Kipkorir announced he is taking a sabbatical, from commentating on the country’s politics saying it is driven by no ideals but personalized interests at the expense of Kenyans. In a tweet, the flamboyant Nairobi lawyer challenged Kenyan leaders to love the country above self, family and tribe as a precursor for developing a prosperous people.
”On reflection, I have decided to take sabbatical from Kenya’s politics which has no higher ideals but driven at its default by personal interests with support of the poor and illiterate base. For Kenya to realize its nirvana, our leaders must love Kenya above self, family and tribe,” Kipkorir, popularly known as the Don tweeted.
