Raila’s Daughter Misses Out on ODM List of Nominees for Kibra Constituency

Rosemary Odinga, daughter of ODM party leader Raila Odinga, will not be contesting for the Kibra parliamentary seat.

Rosemary’s name was conspicuously missing from the list of Nairobi parliamentary aspirants set to battle it out in the ODM primaries.

Ms Odinga has, however, not publicly announced her withdrawal from the race after launching her bid in January.

She has been sick from March this year and is recuperating at an undisclosed South African medical facility after undergoing surgery to remove a brain tumour.

She was flown to South Africa on February 28 for treatment on meningioma after being admitted at the Aga Khan and Nairobi hospitals for eight days.

According to the list published yesterday, only three candidates will be seeking to clinch the ODM ticket seeking election as MP for Kibra constituency.

They include incumbent MP Kenneth Odhiambo Okoth, Martin Oduor Okoth and Eliud Okech Owalo.
