Raila’s confidants have confirmed that the former prime Minister flew out of the country to seek further treatment that could not be possible in the country.
Odinga’s family representative desputed allegations which emerged last week that Raila had been flown to China for treatment.
A report that was seen by stateupdate.co.ke on the daily nation confirmed that the former prime Minister was taken to Dubai and checked at German facility for a minor procedure on his back.
Raila’s brother Oburu Odinga revealed,”Jakom is out of the country for a minor surgical operation on his back. It is not a serious health issue but just a minor one. So he is okay. The Germans have a good hospital facility in the Arabian country where he is being monitored.”
Oburu Odinga said that the last time Raila stepped foot in China was in December last year but as per now, anyone who wants to step foot there should be ready for a 14 days quarantine.
However, Kenyans went on various social media platforms to ask why the former prime Minister could not seek treatment in the country.
It has been a tendency for most prominent leaders to seek treatment outside the country because Kenya lacks adequate and proper treatment facilitates.
Prominent leaders who have sought treatment outside the country include Beth Mugo, Kisumu governor Anyang Nyong’o amongst other politicians.
