Raila lands in Kenya after Dubai surgery

ODM party leader Raila Odinga jetted into the country on Sunday the 12th of July 2020 from Dubai. He arrived at around 9.39 PM in a private jet.

Rala was in the same jet, an Airbus A318-112(CJ) Elite A6-CAS, MS4211, that Suna East MP Junet Mohammed and Mombasa Governor Ali Hassan Joho used when traveling to Dubai. The two leaders had gone to see the former Prime Minister in the hospital and bring him home.

Raila had gone to seek what he termed as a ‘minor surgery’.

However, reports indicated that the former prime minister would not be in the public light for two weeks after his return. This was in line with government policies requiring an international traveler to self-quarantine for two weeks amidst the pandemic.

A silent entry.

Unlike previous occasions where fans flooded the airport to welcome Baba home, Raila this time made a silent entry. John Mbadi also confirmed this, indicating that supporters should not expect fanfare. He additionally emphasized that most importantly, the former PM is recovering.

“Baba would have been welcomed by his supporters, but I don’t think that will be the case. To me, the important thing is that the surgery went on well, and he is recovering well at least by the reports that we have heard far seen,” Mbadi said.

Raila had his surgery at the Saudi German Hospital (SGH) in Dubai. Although he did not disclose what exactly he was ailing from, Mr. Odinga has made significant recoveries. His daughter, Winnie Odinga, shared a video of him in a jovial mood as he recuperated.

Joho and Junet revealed that their trip to Dubai would also include keeping Raila up-to-date with the ongoing activities in Kenya’s political arena.
