Rosemary Odinga makes first statement since being taken ill

Kibra constituency parliamentary aspirant, Rosemary Odinga, has spoken to the Kenyan public for the first time since she was admitted in hospital eight days ago.

On Wednesday, through a Facebook post, Rosemary thanked Kenyans for their continued support and prayers.

In a separate update posted on Wednesday, she uploaded a picture of herself enjoying a cruise at an unknown destination.

“A new month signifies new beginnings. If things did not go your way in February, March is offering you a second chance. Make good use of it. I wish you all a blessed Month,” she wrote.

Rosemary, who is the daughter of opposition leader Raila Odinga, was flown to South Africa on Tuesday morning for further treatment on a suspected brain tumour. She was accompanied by her mother Ida Odinga and her younger sister Winnie.

Rosemary was hospitalized at the Nairobi Hospital on February 19 following complaints of persistent migraines with initial reports indicating that she could be having a tumour in her brain and was expected to undergo surgery to remove it.
