Rosemary Odinga still in hospital

Cord leader Raila Odinga’s daughter Rosemary is still admitted to hospital even as the family remained tight lipped about her condition.

Sources close to the Odinga family say that prior to her admission, Rosemary had complained of persistent migraines that made her go to hospital for a CT scan of the head to determine what was causing the migraines.

While the Nation could not ascertain Ms Odinga’s current condition, it is suspected that she could be having a tumour in her brain and is scheduled to undergo surgery to remove it.

Sources also say that the family has requested privacy.

“We are not sure of her condition but are equally worried. We have respected the distance the family has requested from us,” said the source.

Rosemary was rushed to hospital last week Friday and it is not clear whether or not the family knew about the existence of tumour before her admission.

Ms Odinga is still admitted to Aga Khan University Hospital.

The Nation has however learnt that Raila Odinga’s second born child—who is in the 2017 election race for the Kibera Parliamentary seat— is under the care of a renowned neurosurgeon Dr David Livingstone Oluoch-Olunya.

Dr Oluoch-Olunya is a part-time consultant neurosurgeon at the Aga Khan Hospital and also a family doctor to the Odingas.

The neurosurgeon also operated on the Cord leader back in 2010 to relieve pressure that had built up around his [Mr Odinga’s] brain.

“People have been speculating about her condition because of the specialist but he is their family doctor and his specialization should not be used to diagnose her,” the source added.
