Ida Odinga has finally spoken out about her husband’s ODM Leader Raila Odinga’s health condition that saw him get airlifted to Dubai for surgery.
Dismissing reports on his condition being critical, Ida confirmed that the AU Special Envoy was recovering following treatment in the foreign country.
“He is in the United Arab Emirates – Dubai based International Hospital run by Germans. He has been successfully treated of a mild nerve disorder affecting one leg and not what has been alleged.
“Treat such rumours with utmost contempt and abhorrence. It’s not right to speculate on someone’s health,” she was quoted by The Standard.
She further stated that Raila was doing better adding that she stayed in contact with him on an hourly basis.
Ida stated that the decision to airlift the ODM leader was to give him enough time to recover without interruption from family and guests.
