Rosemary Odinga, daughter of NASA flagbearer Raila Odinga was earlier in 2017 flown to South Africa for treatment after being diagnosed with a non-cancerous brain tumor.

This was after she spent eight days undergoing treatment at the Aga Khan University Hospital.

Rosemary, who was vying for the Kibra MP stopped her pursuit of the seat, citing her health as the main reason.

She had a meningioma, which is a problem that can cause blindness and defects with movement as it develops in the brain.

Raila Odinga, during an interview with KTN News’ Betty Kyalo at the Serena Hotel in Nairobi, revealed that his second born was recovering well.

He said, “Rosemary has made tremendous progress since she came back from South Africa. She recently went to Israel and met some good consultants and they have put her on a regime. They are all surprised that she has made such fast progress.”

Raila also said that rosemary is in high spirits and that she remains grateful to Kenyans who have been praying for her and sending her goodwill messages.
