Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party leader Raila Odinga on Saturday paid his in-laws a visit ahead of his Azimio la Umoja rally at Ihura Stadium, Murang’a county.
Raila was accompanied to his in-laws’ place in Kandara by his son, Raila Odinga Junior, who is married to one of the family members.
Junior is married to Yvonne Wambui Odinga who welcomed the former Prime minister to their home at around 10 am.
“When a man marries a girl from a family.. he becomes a son . He is a son of Murang’a because he has married from there.. I am a son of Muranga and Baba is the muthoniwa,” said Junior who shared the photos on social media.
