Brown envelop is a term in journalism which refers to a practice whereby monetary inducement is given to journalists to make them write a positive story or kill a negative story. The name is derived from cash inducements hidden in brown envelopes and given to journalists during press briefings.

A section of social media users claimed Raila had probably taken some ‘bribe’ to Mzee as he solicited for a political union with Gideon Moi.

Raila’s spokesperson Dennis Onyango, however, said the visit was apolitical and only meant to take good wishes to Mzee after a knee surgery in Israel.

He further added that the meeting was a courtesy call Mr Odinga paid Mzee Moi in a bid to consult with him on the current state of political affairs in the Nation.

Interestingly, political pundits have flatly rejected this position.

They argue that anything in politics is by design, nothing by default.

The unprecedented visit comes a month after Mr Odinga made a ceasefire agreement with President Uhuru Kenyatta, and in the wake of the interest of Moi’s son, Gideon, in 2022 presidential race.

Mzee Moi’s son,Gideon Moi harbors the 2022 Presidential ambitions, and according to The Standard,the discussions at Kabarak also reportedly touched on the country’s political journey to the 2022 elections.
