Raila quietly jets in after surgery


July. 14, 2020

ODM leader Raila Odinga’s wife, Ida, yesterday, expressed the joy of watching him stroll in the garden at their home in Karen, Nairobi, a day after he returned to the country from Dubai, where he underwent a minor hip surgery. “He is okay and doing well. I can see him walking outside in the garden. We thank everyone for their prayers. The family will issue a statement at the right time,” Ida told The Standard yesterday. Raila (
) and his entourage arrived at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) aboard a luxurious Constellation Aviation Airline Airbus A318-112 (CJ) Elite A6-CAS, MS4211 on Sunday night.
“You know that currently there are no commercial flights. This meant if he was to come back, we had to charter a plane,” she stated. Dismissing reports of critical illness, Ida said the AU Special Envoy was recovering well. Ida said before Raila returned, she had stayed in contact with him on hourly basis before and after the minor operation. On July 1, Raila spoke after the operation. “I’m feeling great and let me thank everyone who sent me messages of goodwill. Asante, Asante, Asante Sana,” he said in a tweet. The handing over of the Building Bridges Initiative report has delayed, ostensibly as a result of Raila’s absence from public limelight.
