ODM Party Leader Raila Odinga has been admitted at the Nairobi Hospital.
According to Raila’s elder brother Oburu Odinga, the former prime minister went to the hospital on Tuesday, several medical checkups were done on him and was allowed to go back to his Karen residence.
Raila was however taken back to the hospital on Wednesday morning, with doctors expected to conduct further tests. It is reported that Raila has taken a COVID-19 test, and the results are not yet out.
Oburu says Raila was complaining of fatigue and body aches. This is just after coming from a three-day tour of the Coast region, where he drummed up support for Building Bridges Initiative.
“He doesn’t have any pains on the chest or any cough, or anything like that. It was just general fatigue of the body and some joint pains. That is what I could see. But I am not a doctor,” says Oburu.
Raila’s personal doctor is expected to issue a statement later in the day.
