Following his no-show during the ongoing anti-government protests, many Kenyans were concerned over the whereabouts of Azimio leader Raila Odinga.
When Narc Kenya leader Martha Karua and Co addressed the press on Tuesday, Baba was conspicuously absent and it was said that he was handling important engagements elsewhere.
His daughter Winnie Odinga on Wednesday assured the public that the former Prime Minister is doing well although she did not disclose his whereabouts.
“Sasa…Hii story ya Baba imetoka wapi? Baba ako sawa. Tena aliniboo na story ya gym 30mins ago,” wrote Winnie.
Netizens put pressure on her to give Baba’s exact location but she maintained that the ODM leader was okay.
“Saa Unataka? Nikisema ako sawa ako sawa.”
The anti-government protests entered day two with some Kenyans opting to stay away from major towns.
Unlike Wednesday, a number of businesses in the Nairobi CBD were open on Thursday as life slowly crept back to the usually busy streets.

Elsewhere, Kisumu town was deserted as businesses remained shut following the chaos that was experienced on Wednesday.
In Homa Bay town, youths had blocked the road with stones as they geared up for the protests, lamenting the high cost of living.
