Although Project Kenya is still imperfect and evolving, @RailaOdinga should have pride that he’s planted seeds of greatness – Devolution, Justice, Equity & Democracy in it. We will get better as they germinate and blossom. #HappyBirthdayBaba pic.twitter.com/cR5T93XevA

Happy birthday to you baba @RailaOdinga. You faught so hard to make sure kenyans get the democracy they are enjoying now, you were handcuffed, tear gassed, maimed and tortured to fulfill the will of the people. Your memories will forever live to be cherished. #HappyBirthdayBaba pic.twitter.com/ViZN6dIJdT

You are the only force existing after gravity.
You made the government demonstrate against the opposition.
You have always wanted a better Kenya for all of us.
Wishing you good health #HappyBirthdayBaba pic.twitter.com/q5D9kQ5Qwr
