Njagi  recalled the many battles Raila  fought in pursuit of good governance and   democracy for this   country and said his immense contribution will forever remain engraved in the history books  for generations  to read.

“We also take congnisance of the fact that the many years  Raila was subjected to unjust imprisonments and detentions  significantly contributed to his ill health but we thank God  that despiteall this our leader is now back on his two feet even after the attack by the covid  pandemic ,”the Cleric said .

Due     to the   restrictions caused by the covid- 19 protocols ,he added only Five  members of the Forum were able  to meet this afternoon at Wanguru  in Mwea, Kirinyaga  County .

He explained that the members were from Nyeri, Embu, Meru , Tharaka-Nithi and the host Kirinyaga  counties.
