Opposition Leader Raila Odinga on Saturday arrived at Kisumu and later attended an event at Siaya County.

On Sunday, the former Prime Minister paid courtesy call to veteran Kisumu politician Mama Grace Onyango, now ailing but still focused and alert.

The 91-year old veteran politician is still the sharp person who took on an all-male cast in Parliament in the 70s. 

She became the first Kenyan woman mayor when she was elected in Kisumu in 1965, replacing Mathias Ondiek before being elected the first woman MP for Kisumu Town in 1969.
