It is with humbleness and great mercy to all the congregation gathering that had attended the CORD Rally witnessing their fall or collapse of the podium. The Thursday occurrence in which Cord pioneer Raila Odinga fell when a platform fallen in Malindi had gotten just about 200,000 perspectives on online networking by Monday evening. The occurrence evoked remarks, with more than 50 likes and just four disdains by 5.30pm.
The episode happened after Mr Odinga, Mr Moses Wetang’ula and Mr Kalonzo Musyoka escorted Mombasa Governor Joho to Malindi Police Station to show the court request. M Raila ombasa Senator Hassan Omar said Mr Odinga was not harmed in the Thursday episode.
NB: Raila Odinga admitted that the podium collapsed in an unexpected scenario but that he was okay, it was not a videoshoped clip circulating and that he had no injuries following the incident that happened unexpectedly.
“He continued tending to the group. It was generally as little issue,” Mr Omar said, including that the Cord pioneer continued to court to get an order against the capture of Mr Joho.
Some Kenyans said the Coast district was turned out to be a terrible sign for Mr Odinga, who on September 29, 2014, was whipped by a man distinguished as Lengo Mdzomba at an open rally in Kwale. Mr Odinga did not squeeze charges.
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.
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.
