Wednesday August 7, 2013 - Former Prime Minister Raila Odinga’s wife, Mama Ida Odinga, arrived at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) from Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, just few hours before the fire begun.
According to her, things seemed normal few hours before 5 am but said she was shocked to hear from the news this morning that the airport she had just used a few hours ago was now up in flames.
She thanked God for landing her safely in Kenya and evading such troubles of her flight having to be diverted to Mombasa.
However, she prayed for everyone at JKIA to be safe and hopped there will be no casualties.
“I hope everyone at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport is safe. Glad I arrived home from Addis just a couple of hours before the fire”, she wrote on Twitter.
