Last week, numerous social media users shared a claim that former Prime Minister and opposition chief Raila Odinga had been flown to China for treatment of a kind of cancer “associated with old people”

According to the claim, Raila was accompanied by his daughter Winnie Odinga and an unidentified male aide to China.

Many others also circulated a letter which appeared to have been signed by ODM Secretary General Edward Sifuna and alleged to give clarification on the claim.

ODM Director of Communication Philip Etale, however, later dismissed the claim as fake news, saying it was the work of “sick people who have run out of ideas.”

Etale said Raila was in Kinshasa, DRC, in his capacity as the AU High Representative for Infrastructure Development in Africa for the virtual Pan African Conference on the Grand Inga Dam.

Raila also posted on the same but many questioned why he had to travel Kinshasa, over 3,655.7 km away, for a virtual conference.
