Cord leader Raola Odinga has once again felt the pain of loosing a son, Stephen Mukabana, a trusted friend of Raila and also a son (though not biologically) after he was murdered in cold blood.
Mukabana was shot dead on the night of Tuesday, April 12, near his residence in Mihango area, Kayole.
Mukabana was Cord’s youth leader and his presence had a lot of influence to the youths keeping in mind that the 2017 elections are around. This is a big blow to the party.
Reports indicate that the young man had been trailed by unknown assassins who shot him when he stopped to help a robbery victim.
However, his death is yet to be established to determine whether it was politically motivated or had anything to do with a failed business deal.
Mukabana was like a son to the former Prime Minister and he will be remembered for his efforts to bring reforms to the youth leadership of the ODM party. CORD leaders have sent their condolences to the deceased family and friends.
