Akothee also informed Ida about her pregnancy and shared that Ida stood by her when she tragically lost the same pregnancy after 10 weeks. Akothee explained that Mrs. Odinga is like a mother to her.

"When I met Omosh, I broke the news to her. When Omosh engaged me and set a date for my wedding she was the first to get the news before anyone else. When I got pregnant at 6 weeks, I called her and told her.

"Mum, we are pregnant. First, she laughed, then congratulated me. She understands me just like a mother would understand her daughter. She knows I crave for love therefore her door is open for me 24/7. When we lost the pregnancy, at 10 weeks, she called and we talked a lot, I felt better," Akothee wrote.
