Former Prime Minister Raila Odinga, on Wednesday, July 1, spoke for the first time since his medical surgery in Dubai.
A video shared on his social media pages showed him clad in a pair of shorts, displaying his agility on both feet as he explained the overwhelming nature of all the well-wishes he received during his recovery.
“I’m feeling great, I feel strong and rejuvenated and it feels good to be out of town breathing fresh air.
“I want to thank all my friends, supporters and youth, and everyone who has sent me messages, it feels good and makes one recover faster,” he said”
Raila underwent surgery to treat a nerve disorder that had affected one of his legs, according to his wife Ida Odinga.
“He is in the United Arab Emirates-Dubai based International Hospital run by Germans. He has been successfully treated of a mild nerve disorder affecting one leg and not what has been alleged,” Ida stated.
She also dismissed claims that Raila’s condition was critical.
“Treat such rumours with utmost contempt and abhorrence. It’s not right to speculate on someone’s health,” she asserted.
True to her statements, the PM in his latest video displayed his agility on both feet for the world to see, as he explained the overwhelming nature of all the well-wishes he received during his recovery.
