Amongst those in attendance was the former Prime Minister,Raila Odinga and his wife Ida,Fidel’s Eritrean wife,Lwam and other relatives including brothers and sisters.
However,one man that stood out was Fidel’s now all grown up son Allay,who unlike the others was relaxed,in a jovial mood-little knowing what was happening-not to forget the toddler’s swag!!
Check him out in the photos below.
Meanwhile, here is the moving letter from the Odinga’s to Fidel;
ODINGAS REMEMBER FIDEL AFTER “LONG YEAR OF GRIEF”:
One year has now gone by. You are sadly missed but fondly remembered by your parents, Rt. Hon Raila Odinga and Dr. Ida Odinga, your wife Lwam and your darling son Allay, your siblings Rosemary, Raila Jr, Yvonne and Winnie, your nieces Saphie and Senayi, uncles, aunties, cousins and all your relatives and friends.
We the Odinga family would like to thank all those who stood with us during our long year of grief, following the loss of our dear Fidel.
We welcome all to a memorial service for Fidel and the 22nd anniversary of Mzee Jaramogi Oginga Odinga on Saturday January 30th 2016 at Jaramogi Oginga Odinga University of Science and Technology, Bondo Town, Siaya County.
“We little knew that morning that God was going to call your name. In life we loved you unconditionally, in death we do the same.
Rt. Hon Raila Odinga and Dr. Ida Odinga.”
Rest Well Fidel.
