Raila to be back home soon

NAIROBI
By Collins Kweyu | July 5th 2020

Orange Democratic Movement leader Raila Odinga is expected back in the country soon after undergoing surgery in Dubai recently, said his wife Ida Odinga.

Speaking at Jaramogi Odinga Foundation offices in Nairobi yesterday when she received food and sanitisers for distribution to vulnerable members of the society in Nairobi’s 17 constituencies, Mrs Odinga said Raila underwent a successful surgery and would be back in the country to continue with his work.

“Baba will be home soon. He is recuperating well and he will be back to join his people,” she said.

She thanked well-wishers who donated food, masks and sanitisers to be provided to people, mainly women, who had been hard hit by coronavirus outbreak.

“Majority of them are women who lost their jobs after restaurants they were working in - and several companies in Industrial Area - were shut down. This will be a relief to them,” she said.

She called on well-wishers to help the needy in society during this difficult period of coronavirus pandemic.

Her calls were echoed by Makadara MP George Aladwa who attended the brief ceremony.
