Raila Odinga was on Sunday evening heavily trolled and criticized after he sent a tweet that seemed to support the recently completed elections in the DRC.
In his tweet, Raila said that the citizens had made their choice which was affirmed by the electoral commission and the country’s Supreme Court.
What followed were comments from Kenyans asking the former Prime Minister, who is a victim of electoral fraud, why he was supporting the undemocratic polls in the DRC.
Some even tried linking Odinga’s remarks to his recent handshake with Uhuru Kenyatta.
We sampled some of the comments below.
This is not baba… These are hackers

Raila Odinga is excellent at creating the need for negotiation, but extremely poor at the bolts and nuts of negotiation. Fact!

The people of DRC spoke and they elected Martin Fayulu. But I'm not surprised with your tweets endorsing electoral fraud the "Handcheque"Loading...

You were rigged in 2007 and now you are congratulating the thief who happens to be your friend. Democracy or self interest?

Baba Fayulu swore himself as the People's President. The leadership of the Catholic Church told the world of their own result. Can we trust the electoral body in DRC and their supreme court or it is a case of their people accepting and moving on

I hope this is not BABA! The same courts and institutions you rejected their rulings!
Does this mean you were defeated and couldn't accept the defeat?
