Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) leader Raila Odinga on Thursday April 1, 2021 spoke publicly about his health weeks after he had tested positive for Covid-19 disease.
The Opposition leader had announced that he will go for self-isolation at his home as was instructed by his team of doctors after having tested positive for the COVID-19.
The ODM leader was speaking to Kenyans when he accompanied President Uhuru Kenyatta for inspection of Nairobi County development projects at New Nairobi Green park bus terminus.
He said that the past three weeks had taken a toll on him but he was grateful to have recovered.
“Wakenya mnajua nimetoka. Nimetoka nje kwa mara ya kwanza. Kwa wiki tatu nimekuwa hali mahtuti lakini sasa nimetoka,” Raila said.
The former Prime Minister also acknowledged the current harsh economic times being witnessed by Kenyans but assured them of government’s commitment in protecting their lives.
“I know most Kenyans are suffering economically, but the most important things is ensuring that the lives of Kenyans are protected, ” Raila noted.
During their tour to Nairobi County, the duo made their first stop over at the Green Park Bus Terminus along Haile Selassie Avenue in Nairobi.
The new Nairobi Green park bus terminus being developed by the Nairobi Metropolitan Service is part of the government’s effort to decongest the city.
