Rosemary Odinga makes first public appearance since being taken ill – PHOTOS

Former Prime Minister Raila Odinga’s daughter Rosemary Odinga has made the first public appearance since she was taken ill in February last year.

Rosemary appeared for her 41st birthday celebrations on Saturday.

Family and friends converged at Deeps EA Horse Riding School in Kitusuru for the invite-only event.

Mr Odinga, his wife Ida, son Raila Junior and daughter Winnie were all in attendance.

Apart from the family members, other guests included Nairobi Woman Representative Esther Passaris, Pius Ngugi, Dagoretti North MP Simba Arati, former Alego Usonga MP Sammy Weya and businessman Edwin Ngonga, among others.


Ms Odinga suffered a mild stroke in February 2017 leading to her hospitalization at the Nairobi Hospital.

Initial reports indicated that she was having a brain tumor and on February 28 she was flown to South Africa for further treatment. She returned in May last year.


The illness forced her to drop out of the Kibra parliamentary race which was eventually won by incumbent Ken Okoth.
