You won’t believe who represented RAILA at the burial of Governor OBADO’s mother in- law that was boycotted by other ODM leaders! Things have changed


Sunday June 9, 2019-In what could be an improving relationship between Raila Odinga and Migori Governor Okoth Obado, Mama Ida Odinga on Friday represented the former Prime Minister in the burial of the Governor's mother-in-law, Mama Hellen Adhiambo.

But in a surprise move, several ODM leaders boycotted the funeral in what could be their strained relationship with the controversial Governor.

Only Nyamira Governor John Nyagarama and Homa Bay Deputy Governor Hamilton Orata attended the ceremony.

Several MCAs also boycotted the event for being disappointed by Obado.

Migori Woman Representative Pamela Odhiambo, Senator Ochillo Ayacko and all MPs among them Junet Mohamed, Paul Abuor and Mark Nyamita also snubbed the event.

"We must preach unity. For far too long, Nyanza people have been sidelined economically. I am however happy with the new approach following the handshake," Nyangarama said.

In her address, Mama Ida Odinga stated her business, noting that she was sent by her husband Raila, who was in Russia on official business, to represent him.

"I have come here to represent Raila who is away from the country. He told me to bring his condolences to the family and friends. We are sorry for the loss," she said amid cheers.
