Raila's daughter flown to South Africa for further treatment after being diagnosed with brain tumour

Cord leader Raila Odinga's daughter was flown out at about 11am on Tuesday accompanied by neurosurgeon Oluoch Olunya and Amref flying doctors.


It is not yet confirmed which hospital she was taken to but sources indicate she had been flown to South Africa for rehabilitation.

According to the source, the tumor had caused her to bleed internally before she was rushed to Aga Khan hospital.

Doctors were only able to stop the bleeding and did not perform the operation.
