It is a sad morning for the Odinga family after former Prime Minister Raila Odinga’s eldest son Fidel Odinga died this morning. His lifeless body was found on his bed early Sunday morning, before being moved to Lee Funeral Home.

Police are investigating the cause of death. Reportedly, Fidel was out on Saturday night before returning home at about 1AM. He had earlier had dinner with his father at the former PM’s home.

Members of Parliament and senator were this morning seen at Raila’s residence upon learning of the news.

Fidel was seen as the most likely in the Odinga family to take his father and grandfather’s road to politics. He was in recent weeks spotted in several CORD rallies.

He leaves behind a wife and son.
