Kibra MP aspirant Rosemary Odinga has been moved from Nairobi Hospital back to Aga Khan, a source within the hospital has told the press.

Rosemary, Cord leader Raila Odinga’s second born, was admitted at Agha Khan Hospital on Friday with a headache, and moved to Nairobi Hospital on Sunday.

The source said she had been in the hospital’s Intensive Care Unit before she was moved this morning.

A doctor at The Aga Khan, who spoke to the press in confidence, said Rosemary has meningioma, a brain tumor that is usually harmless but which applies pressure to the brain. The condition is not life-threatening.

She is being examined by two surgeons who will decide if she should undergo surgery.

Other sources close to Rosemary said her hospital records were untraceable and that only family members were allowed to visit.

Rosemary, 39, is functionally the first born following the death of her older brother Fidel.

She is followed by Winnie Odinga and Raila Odinga Jnr who is the last born.
