Mombasa Governor Hassan Joho has departed for Dubai to visit Orange Democratic Movement leader Raila Odinga who has been receiving treatment in the United Arab Emirates and is recuperating well after minor surgery.
Gov. Joho, who is also ODM’s deputy party leader, has been accompanied by Suna East MP Junet Mohammed, who is Odinga’s close friend, confidant and loyalist.
Raila Odinga has been in Dubai for treatment for the past two weeks after his family confirmed that the former Prime Minister had undergone a small ‘surgical procedure’ on his back to stem consistent pain.
“Jakom (Raila) is out of the country for a minor surgical operation on his back. It is not a serious health issue, but just a minor one. So, he’s okay,” Oburu Odinga, the party leader’s elder brother, recently said.
