Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) leader Raila Odinga's son, Junior has opened up about a medical condition that left his face deformed.
Speaking during a recent interview with Radio Jambo, Junior reveals that he suffers from a noncancerous brain tumor which developed when he was young.
“Nothing happened to me although I suffer from a medical condition,” he says.
He explains that the condition also affected his nervous system and has lived with it since his childhood.
“It’s a non-cancerous tumor that was in my brain and this affected my nerve system since I was young way back in 1985. It has always been with me in my lifetime,” Raila Junior adds.
In the candid interview with Massawe Japanni, Junior also spoke about struggling to get a child with his wife, Yvonne Wambui.
He says they got a lot of pressure from family and friends due to their inability to get a child. However, after about five years, the two were finally blessed with a baby boy.
“I hope she (Yvonne) will allow me to disclose this. We had been married for a long time and we weren’t able to get a child in the very first years."
“We struggled for a very long time for about four, five years and eventually God blessed us with our firstborn a son,” the 39-year-old narrates.
