Raila Odinga Leaves For South Africa To Visit His Hospitalized Daughter Rosemary


Orange Democratic party leader, Raila Odinga, was admitted at the Karen Hospital on Tuesday evening after suddenly falling ill. He was later diagnosed with food poisoning. After his short illness, Raila emerged unscathed taking to Facebook to warmly thank his supporters for their prayers and sympathies.

“I wish to sincerely thank all Kenyans for the prayers, messages of solidarity, sympathy, love and support on learning of my brief hospitalization yesterday. Those prayers and messages of love have continued to flow today, many hours after I was treated and discharged,” he wrote

Even before the dust settles on the news of his illness, the opposition chief left early this morning for South Africa to visit his eldest daughter, Rosemary Odinga. Rosemary is hospitalized in South Africa for the removal of a brain tumor at an undisclosed hospital.
