Opposition leader Raila Odinga early Thursday paid a visit to former President Daniel arap Moi at his home in Kabarak, Nakuru County.

According to his spokesman Dennis Onyango, Raila left Nairobi a few minutes before midday accompanied by Mvita MP Abdulswamwad Shariff Nassir and Vihiga Senator George Khaniri.

On arrival at the Kabarak airstrip, Raila and his delegation was received by Tiaty MP William Kamket and Moiben MP Silas Tiren.

At home, he was welcomed by Baringo Senator Gideon Moi and former MP Nick Salat who ushered him to a meeting with the former President.

“The visit followed recent hospitalisation of the former President in Israel. Mr Odinga was visiting to wish the former president well. The two leaders in the process discussed the state of the Kenyan nation during the visit that lasted more than one hour . The former President was strong and in high spirits,” he said.

Raila has been on unification mission since the Harambee House handshake that sealed a truce with President Uhuru Kenyatta.

Among those he has met are former Kiambu governor William Kabogo, MPs, Knut secretary general Wilson Sossion, who is also an ODM Nominated MP and members of the People’s Parliament.

He has also held discussions with foreign envoys including outgoing US ambassador George Godec, British High Commissioner Nic Hailey, a Commonwealth delegation led by  Secretary-General Patricia Scotland and a delegation from the US-based National Democratic Institute led by its President Kenneth Wollack.
