The opposition leader’s daughter touched the congregation of St Peter’s ACK church in Bondo, Siaya County, on Wednesday during Christmas service where she accompanied her father and spoke of her battle with partial blindness.
“I felt alone and had to quickly learn to use sounds and movements of people to tell who was around me. Those were the most trying moments of my life,” she said.
Mr Odinga narrated that his family was forced to move from one hospital to the another, locally and outside the country, in search of a remedy.
“We got to a point where we nearly gave up as a family after unsuccessfully visiting many hospitals including in Germany, China and South Africa before she was finally healed in India,” he said
Mr Odinga said the healing was amongst the many milestones the family achieved this year and for which they are grateful.
The likes of lawyer Ahmednassir Abdullahi, KTN host Tony Gachoka, city lawyer Donald Kipkorir and Kenya Film Classification Board boss Ezekiel Mutua could not hold their joy in hearing the news and tweeted their expressions as well.
