The Thursday video, taken by a novice picture taker, demonstrates Mr Odinga tending to a group at Karisa Maitha Stadium behind Cleopatra Theater when the dais breakdown. The Cord pioneer, Mombasa Governor Ali Hassan Joho and a few resistance pioneers additionally fell.
Mr Odinga and Cord co-principals Kalonzo Musyoka and Moses Wetang’ula were in Malindi to thank voters for choosing ODM competitor Willy Mtengo in the March 7 parliamentary by-race. They were from the police headquarters where they exhibited a court request to stop the capture of ODM pioneers over decision savagery.
The ODM supporters were left in stun when the platform they were watching collapsed.
The occurrence occurred when the Cord chief was describing Jesus Christ’s visit to the mountain where he was enticed by Satan.
“He was discussing Jesus on the mountain when the fallen angel was enticing him,” Ms Esther Siamini said. Ms Rachael Kahumbi, another observer, said the same story.
‘SATAN IS A LIAR’
Mr Abdul Abubakar said individuals began yelling “Satan is a liar! Satan be crushed!” when the platform fell. Ms Siamini said every one of the pioneers, including governors, MPs and ward reps stayed on the ground when the podium broke down.
“Fortunately, nobody was injured. That is normal. It happens on many occasions,” he said.
He asked Kenyans to stop politicising the issue or reading much into it.
“We reduced the number of leaders on the podium to between five to seven and the Cord leader continued to address the rally,” he added.
