Reggae music again: Raila excites netizens with cheeky tweet following Super Tuesday win

The tally of county assemblies that backed the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) Bill on Tuesday peaked at 38 and handshake partner Raila Odinga clearly cannot hide his joy. The Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party leader on Wednesday morning posted a perceivably cheeky tweet that sent Kenyan social media users into a frenzy. “I woke up to Busy Signal’s – Reggae music again hit. ‘Peace and love for every day.’ What are you listening to?” He posed. The tweet’s not-so-subtle reference to what has long been referred to as the unstoppable BBI Reggae elicited mixed reactions from Kenyans on Twitter. https://twitter.com/gotieno52/status/1364452467740708865 https://twitter.com/itskogo/status/1364456349090856964 https://twitter.com/Dmarigiri_/status/1364457633013456897 Raila on Tuesday evening released a statement commending the county assemblies for being “able to push back on a year-long campaign of lies, misinformation and undue influence on a document whose centre piece is ensuring prosperity and equitable sharing of the same.” “I thank the members of those county assemblies and our governors who refused to give in to mistrust, cynicism, brinkmanship and fearmongering and passed the Bill resoundingly. As I said during the launch of the collection of signatures on the Bill, I have worked with our people on processes of change like this for a long time. I know for a fact that Kenyans are not slow learners when it comes to recognizing and seizing moments of change. That faith stands reaffirmed and renewed,” he said.
