Former Prime Minister Raila Odinga and his family took time to remember the late Fidel Odinga, a year after he passed away in his Karen home.
Fidel was his first son and was married to Lwam, together having a son called Allay.
Raila took to his Facebook page to say;
“ODINGAS REMEMBER FIDEL AFTER “LONG YEAR OF GRIEF”:
One year has now gone by. You are sadly missed but fondly remembered by your parents, Rt. Hon Raila Odinga and Dr. Ida Odinga, your wife Lwam and your darling son Allay, your siblings Rosemary, Raila Jr, Yvonne and Winnie, your nieces Saphie and Senayi, uncles, aunties, cousins and all your relatives and friends.
We the Odinga family would like to thank all those who stood with us during our long year of grief, following the loss of our dear Fidel.
We welcome all to a memorial service for Fidel and the 22nd anniversary of Mzee Jaramogi Oginga Odinga on Saturday January 30th 2016 at Jaramogi Oginga Odinga University of Science and Technology, Bondo Town, Siaya County.
"We little knew that morning that God was going to call your name. In life we loved you unconditionally, in death we do the same.
Rt. Hon Raila Odinga and Dr. Ida Odinga.”
