The former Prime Minister and ODM party leader Raila Odinga has been discharged from Nairobi Hospital after being diagnosed with Covid-19.

In a video that has gone viral online showing Odinga performing body exercises after being discharged from the hospital.

According to Odinga’s personal physician Oluoch Olunya the reason why Raila went public with his Covid-19 test results is because of gaining courage from international leaders such as British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and former US President Donald Trump who both had their test results made public.

“He ordered that his results be made public and be accompanied with a personal statement to Kenyans that Covid-19 is real and they need to listen to what the government is saying,” Dr. Olunya stated. Olunya’s sentiments were echoed by Raila’s spokesman Dennis Onyango who stated that the former PM’s decision to go public with his Covid-19 test results has helped and should be emulated by all leaders.

Odinga was admitted to Nairobi Hospital on Monday, March 8 after complaining of fatigue. This led to numerous tests conducted by a team of doctors led by Olunya who later revealed the following day that the former Prime Minister had tested positive for Covid-19.

In a statement on Thursday, Raila told Kenyans that Covid-19 is real and urged them to observe all stipulated measures. “This evening, I received a briefing from the doctors who have conducted numerous and complicated tests on me for the last two days… While the tests were several, one important result, which I have authorized the doctors to make public is that I have been found to have been exposed to Covid-19,” he wrote.

He added: “Despite the fact that I feel strong and in good shape after a few days in hospital, I have agreed with my doctors to undertake the mandatory quarantine.” A statement by Nairobi Hospital’s Dr David Olunya has also confirmed that the former premier has the SARS-CoV-2.

“He is responding well to the treatment he is receiving at the Nairobi Hospital and remains upbeat,” his personal doctor said. Prior to his admission in hospital, Raila had been on an intense campaign trail for the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI). This saw the party leader tour the Coastal region with Mombasa Governor Ali Hassan Joho. 

Several associates and political allies have since either gone to isolation or gone for Covid-19 tests. Among these include Raila’s family who tested negative for Covid-19.
