ODM party leader Raila Odinga has been admitted to the Nairobi Hospital with general fatigue and body aches, his family has said.

In a telephone interview with Citizen Digital on Wednesday, Oburu Odinga- the former Prime Minister’s elder brother- said there was no need for alarm.

Oburu claimed that as of Tuesday night when he left the hospital, the results of a medical test which included a COVID-19 test were not yet in.

While watering down claims that the ODM leader had contracted COVID-19, Oburu said the 2022 presidential hopeful had not exhibited any symptoms that pointed at a respiratory disease.

“I was there with him last night, but the medical tests had not come back on COVID-19 but from what I observed, he did not have breathing complications or chest pains, just general fatigue and body aches,” Oburu told Citizen Digital.

He added:

“Everyone falls sick, there is nothing to mourn about or be sad about because everyone falls sick, there is really nothing serious Raila’s admission to hospital,”
