Just a week after news about her blindness circulated on social media platforms, an energetic Rosemary Odinga resurfaced at Kibra constituency for the first time in as many months.
A student leader from Jaramogi Oginga Odinga University of Science and Technology claimed that Ms Odinga had confessed going blind at a funeral to a student in Bondo.
"I am quite shocked that she went blind. She told us that she woke up one day in a South Africa hospital but could not see. She usually spends most time in Coast," he said.
An aide at Capitol Hill, Philip Nyamai, posted photos of Ms Odinga when she returned to Kibra, a constituency she wanted to serve before being diagnosed with brain tumour last year.
"Rosemary Odinga today made her first public appearance since she fell ill in 2017. Together with Hon. Sabina Chege, they joined Chang Lee of I Love Africa at Raila Odinga Education Centre in Kibra to present sewing machines to women under the Women's Economic Development Programme.
"Under this programme, at least 60 women will be trained how to sew using the machines after every three months, upon completion, they will get certificates from the National Program for Examinations."https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=1901135363340818&id=100003331191731.
A close look of her photos in the Tuesday's event suggests otherwise since she walked without help from anybody to the venue.
Further, she was not in an shades associated with blind people that could have directed her comfortably to the venue without external aide.
Apparently, Rosemary is seen showing her sewing prowess on a sewing machine, with those present seemingly cheering her as she enjoyed.
Ms Odinga was diagnosed with brain tumour and was flown to South Africa for treatment. On the pretext of her deteriorating health, she bowed out of Kibra constituency race three months to 2017 polls.
