Common Mwananchi will have to use local hospitals – Sauti Sol’s lead singer Bien weighs in on Riala’s trip to Dubai for surgery

Sauti Sols’s lead singer Bien Aime Baraza has given his two cents on Orange Democratic Movement party leader Raila Odinga’s trip to Dubai for surgery.

The renowned vocalist took to his social media post to compare Raila’s trip to another story that had a picture of a common mwananchi being beaten by a police officer.

“On the blue corner, the rich man is in Dubai for surgery. On the red corner, mwananchi will have to use local hospitals and morgues when Classism meets police brutality. Who’s your money on?,” read his post.

Bien’s post comes hours after Raila Odinga’s family spokesman Oburu Odinga confirmed that the former Prime Minister had been flown to Dubai for minor surgery.

Prior to Oburu confirming the reports, it had been reported that Raila Odinga had flown to China on Sunday 21 June with his daughter Winnie Odinga and a male aide for cancer-related treatment.

However, ODM’s Director of Communication Phillip Etale poured cold water on the claims. He termed that reports as fake adding that Raila had flown to DRC Kinshasa as an AU High Representative.

“Ignore the fake news. It is the work of sick people who have run out of ideas. HE Raila Odinga is currently in Kinshasa, DRC in his capacity as the AU High Representative for the Infrastructure Development in Africa for the virtual Pan African Conference on the Grand Inga Dam. The project aims to unlock the world’s largest hydropower scheme in Africa,” read his tweet.

Blogger Dennis Itumbi later countered Etale’s claims saying that everything was a lie and that Raila Odinga had flown to Abu Dhabi with his daughter, a neurosurgeon, a personal assistant, and a bodyguard.

Documenting the trip, Itumbi stated that Riala had boarded a chartered flight 5YPAA-Cassna 680 from Wilson Airport. He went on to claim that the COVID-19 test Riala took was a stunt meant to ensure that he secures his travel out of the country.
