ODM leader Raila Odinga has hit back at his critics for suggesting that he does not believe in God.
Odinga who met religious leaders from across the country at Ufungamano house on Thursday proclaimed he was a beneficiary of God’s mercies and miracles while dismissing those who have associated him with alleged witchcraft and ungodly actions as pretenders.
“ I’m a beneficiary of God’s mercies and miracles, so many times I’m left speechless when holier-than-thou members of our country say that Raila does not believe in God.ni mtu wa vitendawili…who will not believe in God after going through what I have gone through? …” he posed.
The former Premier who has been on an overdrive campaigning for the Building Bridges’ initiative (BBI) recounted his life experiences marked by family tragedy, political struggles, the assassination of his friends, and torture at detention cells.
“Who would not believe in God after what I have personally gone through with my family? I have seen men and women I was in a struggle with assassinated, comrades disappearing without a trace or comrades immobilized and eventually made to die from torture…it is by the grace of God that I have survived all the tribulations and challenges. I believe in God” he said.
