ODM Deputy Leader Hassan Joho says Raila Odinga is recovering well after having a minor back surgery, at a hospital in the UAE. Odinga had flown out of the country on Tueasday for the procedure, which was conducted at the Saudi German Hospital Dubai (SGH Dubai).
” I had the opportunity to speak to my party leader and my father the Baba of the nation. I feel happy and encouraged that he is progressing well,” the Mombasa Governor said.
Joho, who has been a loyal soldier of Raila reminded Kenyans our leaders are humans too, and they do and they do fall sick sometimes.
“He has undergone a procedure. Let us not forget that even our leaders are human beings. Sometimes they get sick and are treated. ”
The governor expressed his hopes Mr Odinga will be back in the country as soon as possible.
I have no doubt that within the shortest time possible, Baba will be back in Kenya,” he said.
He added the party will continue standing behind Mr Odinga and support his agenda.
“We stand solidly behind him and his agenda is our agenda. What he identifies with is what we are moving with.”
