ODM party leader Raila Odinga has been admitted to the Nairobi Hospital with general fatigue and body aches, his family has said.

In a telephone interview with Citizen Digital on Wednesday, Oburu Odinga- the former Prime Minister’s elder brother- said there was no need for alarm.

Oburu claimed that as of Tuesday night when he left the hospital, the results of a medical test which included a COVID-19 test were not yet in.

He added:

“Everyone falls sick, there is nothing to mourn about or be sad about because everyone falls sick, there is really nothing serious Raila’s admission to hospital,” Citizen
