Worrying Details ‘Leaks’ About Raila’s Health As Kenyans Wait For BBI

Former Prime Minister and African Union Representative for Infrastructure Development Raila Amolo Odinga is scheduled for a two weeks additional break from active politics and official duties. The two weeks break is meant to grant him enough time to recuperate and rest at home having undergone a minor back surgery in Dubai some time in the last few weeks. And having jetted back in the country quietly, the former premier is scheduled to take the break as advised by his team of medical doctors, with his surgery having been entirely successful.

While confirming about the same, ODM Deputy party leader, Council of governors chairperson and Kakamega governor Wycliffe Ambetsa Oparanya stated that his party leader was in pretty much a  good shape, healthy and strong after her medical tour.  But that he still needed to rest at home for a further two weeks as directed by his doctors in order to fully recover. Oparanya further revealed that the break would only mean that his boss would be staying away from active politics, with his position as AU representative also taking a break as a result.Governor Oparanya was speaking after visiting Raila at his home in Karen, saying that his visit was purely as a form of checking up on his leader’s health condition. The nitty gritties of the said visit were not yet clear, with Oparanya downplaying the idea that they had met to discuss party politics and the BBI report. Present at the said meeting were Devolution Cabinet Secretary Eugene Wamalwa, COTU Secretary General Francis Atwoli, Kakamega Senator Cleopas Malala, ODM Secretary General Edwin Sifuna, and Nominated Mp Geoffrey Osotsi.

The two weeks break now also means that the handing over of the highly anticipated Building Bridges To A Better Kenya Report (BBI) will have to wait a little longer. The steering committee winded up their work and finalized on the report. With Chairman Yusuf Hajji revealing that now they were only awaiting a favorable date from the two Handshake principals in order to hand over the report to them. Already political intrigues and strategies are playing out openly between the champions of the Handshake as they wait for the report.
