The wife of Raila Odinga, Ida Odinga has finally broken her silence on what ails her husband, the former Prime Minister of Kenya.
Raila Odinga was airlifted to Dubai for surgery incognito with nobody knowing the real reason why he snuck outside the country in secret.
Dismissing social media reports that Raila Odinga’s condition is critical, Ida finally confirmed that Odinga was recovering in United Arab Emirates.
“He is in the United Arab Emirates – Dubai based International Hospital run by Germans,” Ida said. “He has been successfully treated of a mild nerve disorder affecting one leg and not what has been alleged.
“Treat such rumors with utmost contempt and abhorrence. It’s not right to speculate on someone’s health,” Ida said.
Ida has been in contact with the AU Special Envoy on a daily basis disclosing that Raila Odinga’s move to go abroad to seek medical assistance was because he needed some time away from his friends and supporters to fully recover.
“Had he been here, many people would be flocking the home to see him.”
“Each visitor always wants at least to talk to him thus eating away into his recovery time,” she stated.
