Kimilili MP Didmus Barasa has clarified his statement which he says Kenyans had misinterpreted as him wishing death on ODM leader.
Through his twitter he explained that he meant that he did not wish death on Raila but salvation. He said that his statement on asking God to call Raila actually meant that he wanted to ask God to call the ODM leader to accept Jesus as his Lord and savior.

Kenyans on twitter however did not buy into the legislators explanation and called him out for wishing death on the former Prime Minister.
Here are some of the comments:
Your words will consume you
What we know, you wished Baba @RailaOdinga death during your jubilee meeting. Kumbe hujui historia young man. Utajua hujui.
As a matter of urgency, tafuta Baba Capitol Hill offices and ask for forgiveness. Bure, utashangaa or your people.
