African Union special Envoy Raila Odinga’s moves on the dance floor are becoming common on social media as moments of him taking it easy amidst his serious duties have repeatedly been recorded and shown to prove he is actually a raver like many Kenyans who wait for the weekends eagerly to party.
However a recent video of him getting down to his usual sophisticated styles has been criticized by popular blogger Abraham Mohammed Mutai who has claimed videos of Baba in his private moments should be controlled.
In the videos where drinks are evident on the table, Raila is seen joining a lady and a gentleman on the floor dancing to Rumba beats in the back ground.
“Im not saying Baba should not have a good time. Im saying the videos should be controlled. Recklessly taking videos of Baba in his private moments is something that should not be tolerated for a man of his stature.@Silasjakakimba sijui kama nimesema ukweli,” Mutai lamented.
Baba still walks around with people who shamelessly record him even in compromising situations. They can even record him akiwa washroom. pic.twitter.com/gpcVYslmJU
