Opposition leader Raila Odinga on Monday shared a photo of his recent trip to South Africa to visit his ailing daughter Rosemary.

In the photo, Mr Odinga posed with his wife Ida and their daughter at an undisclosed location.

“In South Africa visiting Rosemary. We thank God for her terrific recovery, thanks to your prayers and her determination, Rozzy is well and sends greetings to all her friends and well wishers,” wrote Mr Odinga.

Ms Rosemary has been in a South African hospital suffering from a brain tumour, even though doctors said it is not life-threatening.

Mr Odinga on March 6 condemned a local daily for publishing a story about his daughter’s health, terming it as false.

In a statement, the Opposition leader said the story by The Sunday Standard, which claimed that  Rosemary had suffered a mild stroke causing her admission in a South African hospital, is fictitious.

He said neither his family nor family friends were consulted before the story was published.

Mr Odinga left the country for South Africa on March 10 to join his wife and younger daughter Winnie who had preceded with Rosemary.
