Winnie Odinga who is ODM leader Raila Odinga’s last born daughter turned 30 years old on March 6, 2020, and she celebrated the day in a special way.

In a tweet that she sent out on social media, she commemorated the day by remembering her late brother Fidel Odinga who died on January 4, 2015.

Winnie further explained that she was praying for eternal guidance, calling on God to rest his brother in eternal peace. 

"I pray for eternal guidance. Rest peacefully bro, I’ve finally reached 30 years," she concluded. 

Fidel Odinga, the eldest son of  ODM leader Raila Odinga, died on January 4, 2015, when he was found dead in his house at Windy Ridge, Karen after a night out with friends.

Born in 1973, the late Fidel was married to an Eritrean woman Getachew Bekele, with whom they had one child. He was the eldest son in a family of four children; Rosemary, Raila Junior and Winnie.

The loss of Fidel Odinga has been a major setback in the family with Mama Ida Odinga stating onetime that it was hard on her but she had to stay strong years after his demise.

It has been a tradition for the family to remember a son they treasured so much. In 2019, Mama Ida wrote a heartfelt message, eulogizing him as a hero she will never replace. 

"Today is always painful because once more it is a reminder that life is sometimes rough, although we were blessed with years with you, our time together will never be enough for you were someone special who was thought so highly of and we will always remember you with affection, warmth, and love," Mama Ida's post read in part.
