In December 2023, Winnie Odinga surprised her followers by revealing that she had been involved in an accident that resulted in a leg injury.

Taking to her Instagram stories, Winnie disclosed that the injury occurred during the Interparliamentary Games held in Kigali, Rwanda.


As an avid basketball enthusiast, Winnie shared that she sustained the injury during the sports event and subsequently underwent surgery to address the issue.

The surgery left her feeling subdued and prompted her to maintain a low profile on social media for a period.

Responding to inquiries from her followers, Winnie Odinga explained the reason for her absence and provided insight into her recovery journey.

She clarified that she had ruptured her Achilles tendon during the Interparliamentary Games in Rwanda but assured her supporters that she was recovering well after the surgical procedure.


The Inter-Parliamentary Games (IPG) represent an opportunity for parliamentarians from East African Community member states to come together in the spirit of camaraderie and sportsmanship.

Held annually, the IPG features various sporting disciplines, including football, netball, athletics, volleyball, and basketball, among others.
