Ex-Kenyan PM’s daughter praises Ayurveda

Ayurveda, a traditional medicinal technique with roots in the Indian subcontinent, is now getting international praises from the daughter of Raila Odinga, the former prime minister of Kenya.


, Odinga’s daughter, who restored her vision after receiving Ayurvedic therapy in India in 2019, has stated that she would bring Ayurveda to Kenya because it may benefit millions of people.

“Earlier I couldn’t see, now I can. PM mentioning my treatment shows close relations b/w our countries. I’ll take Ayurveda to my country, it can help millions of people,” she stated as quoted by the news agency ANI. Odinga’s daughter underwent surgery in Nairobi after being diagnosed with a brain tumour in 2017. Rosemary had complained of serious vision loss in the post-operative time. In 2019, she travelled to India for therapy, which helped her regain her vision.

“I guess it is a testimony that AYUSH has helped someone else, other than India, from another part of the world. It is a testimony that it is universal, that solutions of AYUSH are universal, and I am proud to be part of this story,” commented Rosemary Odinga. AYUSH is the acronym for Ayurveda, Yoga, Naturopathy, Unani, Siddha, and Homoeopathy.

The comment came in during the time of the World Health Organisation launching its Global Centre for Traditional Medicine (GCTM) in Jamnagar in Gujarat. Along with Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Dr Tedros Ghebreyesus, Director-General of the World Health Organization (WHO), was present at the ceremony to lay the foundation stone. The WHO centre in Gujarat will focus on combining old methods with modern technology to uncover the potential of Ayurveda. It will be the world’s first and only international outpost for traditional medicine.

Prime Minister Modi, in his speech mentioned Rosemary’s story and shared that her father, a friend of Mr Modi, met him in New Delhi and told him about his daughter’s illness and how no medical treatment was helping her restore her vision. “She was treated in many big countries but did not regain her eyesight. At last, she found success in India, that too after Ayurveda treatment. Rosemary’s eyesight returned, and she can see now. Her father told me that when she saw her children for the first time after the treatment, it was a golden moment of her life,” said Narendra Modi.
