Kenyans on social media have raised concerns over Azimio la Umoja flag bearer Raila Odinga’s health after President Uhuru Kenyatta’s recent visit.
During the visit, the ODM leader had a swollen face and even tried to cover it with a mask.
However, more photos from the meeting showed that Raila had his upper lip swollen, part of his cheeks and eyes.
The photos sparked mixed reactions online forcing those close to the former Prime Minister to issue a statement on the same.
According to sources who spoke to NTV, Raila suffered the injuries after falling off a treadmill.
