Double Blessings on Mama Ida Odinga's Birthday

Raila Odinga, Son Raila Junior and Yvonne

Former Prime Minister Raila Odinga’s son Raila Junior is a Happy man after his wife Yvonne Wambui Kibukosya gave birth at time his mother Ida Odinga was turning a year older.

Raila Junior took to Twitter to share the good news, congratulating his wife for successfully giving birth on his mother's birthday. He noted that the newborn was the best birthday present to his mother Mama Ida.

"She gave my mum @IdaOdinga the best birthday present in the world @yvejr1 thank you God bless you. Red heart you so much!” shared Raila Junior.


Raila Junior married Yvonne Wambui back in 2011 at a colorful wedding ceremony that was graced by top names from various sectors of the Kenyan economy. She is the daughter of retired music boss, Gido Kibukosya.

In 2019, Junior narrated how the early years of their marriage were frustrating as they made attempts to have a child and nothing was forthcoming.

After five years of trying, lady luck struck and they got a first born son.

“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,”


“Yvonne and I were so okay not being able to conceive for those years, but the frustrations became unbearable because of the pressure from outside. I also tried so hard not to subject Yvonne to more pressure because of the situation,” said Raila Junior.
