Raila Threatens To Sue Newspaper Over False Story On Ailing Daughter
ODM Party leader Raila Odinga has threatened to sue the Standard newspaper and its writer over an article it ran about his ailing daughter Rosemary Odinga.
Odinga through spokesman Dennis Onyango described the article as false adding that he has not spoken to any Standard reporter about her daughter as the article claimed.
The standard newspaper on Sunday ran article that stated how Raila was worried over the health of his daughter and how the family was seeing a possibility of her stepping down from politics.
“Ida and Raila Odinga feel that despite their respect for the media, and press freedom, this was a malicious affront on their family and they shall be taking legal action on both the writer and the newspaper,” he said.
Raila says the article has horrified the entire family and has described it as a breach into Rosemary’s privacy.
Rosemary was flown to South Africa last week following her sudden illness.
