The Cord leader, who has been on a campaign trail in the western bloc on the raging sugar debate, posted photos of the low-key birthday celebrations with his wife and a few members of his extended family, among them grandchildren.

Raila, 70, penned a heartfelt message to Ida, who turns 65, which was posted on his website rao.co.ke.

May the good Lord fill your day with joy, laughter, love and blessings. Here is to 42 more wonderful years together.
