Here is Ida’s emotional tribute to Fidel Odinga
Ida Odinga on Monday wrote an emotional tribute to her deceased son Fidel Odinga on a day he would have celebrated his 42nd birthday.
Fidel was found dead in his bed in January by his wife, Lwam Getachew Bekele, after a night of party.
In a special 108 – word tribute posted on her official Twitter handle, Ida Odinga described the day she gave birth to Fidel as “happiest of her life”.
“Today is the first time we celebrate youth birthday without you being physically present, but you are ably represented by your son Allay who is a mirror image of you and your wife Lwam,” the flowing tribute written in English and Dholuo reads in part.
“Fondly missed by dad, your sisters Rozzy and Winnie, your brother Raila Junior and Yvonne, your nieces Saphie and Senayi, your entire familyand friends. Constantly in our throughts and forever in our prayers. Until we meet again.”
