Friends and family joined Mama Ida Odinga as she celebrated her 70th birthday on Saturday.
Mama Ida was born on August 24, 1950.
Wise, graceful and selfesss were some of the words used to describe Mama Ida, who is ODM leader Raila Odinga's wife.
The party had a flurry of activity with several guests, several not wearing face masks despite government directives to keep social distance and wear them to prevent the spread of Covid-19.
The event was held at the Odinga Karen home.
Some of the guests included Jubilee Party vice chairman David Murathe, former Gatanga MP Peter Kenneth, Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru and Homa Bay Woman Rep Gladys Wanga.
Other guests were EALA member Oburu Oginga, Wajir MP Fatuma Gedi and NGEC commissioner Priscilla Nyokabi.
Oburu said the event was a private affair. “It was a private event; we can’t talk more. Unless you talk to her,” Oburu said on the phone.
