According to reports, the renaming of Mbagathi Road to Raila Odinga Way is meant to honor the former premier’s sacrifice and fight for democracy in the country.

This is among the recent roads that have been renamed in honour of Kenyan leaders. Others include Accra Road which was renamed Keneth Matiba Road and Dik Dik Road which was renamed Francis Atwoli Road.

However, the renaming of Mbagathi Road to Raila Odinga has sparked division among Kenyans online.

This is after the Nairobi county government, in conjunction with the Nairobi Metropolitan Services (NMS) on the night of Thursday, November 4, 2021, renamed Mbagathi Road to Raila Odinga Way.

While a section has questioned why the Road had to be renamed after the former Prime Minister, others welcomed it, while taking note of his achievements as a leader.

“Why are we honouring thieves in this day and age by having Raila Odinga Way & Francis Atwoli Road? Thinking face These people have achieved nothing except dividing, impoverishing, & stealing from Kenyans. Why are we celebrating our captors, our oppressors, and our thieves in this day & age?” Nahashon Kimemia posed.
