On Thursday, Raila Odinga’s Wife Mama Ida Odinga celebrated her birthday in style. The ceremony was held at the Kempinski Hotel and attracted a number of friends and politicians allied to Raila Odinga’s Azimio camp.
Among those present during the ceremony in Nairobi Senator Edwin Sifuna. Taking to his Facebook page on Friday, Sifuna celebrated Mama Ida’s birthday with memories of her unusual calls to him.
Recalling the six years he had served as ODM’s Secretary General, Sifuna said Ida Odinga’s calls to him were the most scary ones. He revealed that Raila’s wife had him not more than five times in those six years and that every time she called he would start sweating.
He said such calls came when he had done something wrong and he usually knew that he had fucked up things when he sees her call.
“About last night….This is my 6th year as SG of the great @TheODMparty. Mama has called me maybe 5 times only over that period of time. Hio simu ukiona unaanza ku sweat because unajua tu umechoma pahali. One day I’ll tell you the story of how this amazing Woman has shaped my journey in politics. But for now, I wish you a long life mama @IdaOdinga. Thank you for everything you have done for me. God bless you” stated Sifuna
It was a ceremony that saw guests dance to their satisfaction as they celebrated her. Raila’s children including Junior and Winnie surprised their mother with a one million shillings cheque.
