Odinga says he is strong and ready to liberate Kenya

“Do you want me to retire? Do you want me to retire? Okay, I am still strong and ready to lead the third liberation which we have begun.

“They expected that I would come back in a wheelchair. They were wrong. Today, I am much stronger and prepared to lead the country’s third liberation,” Odinga said as quoted by Standard.
