In a year that has had terrible news with Covid-19 being the leading reason for many a plight, one sometimes likes hearing a success story.
One of the ones that I can recollect best in the recent past is Rosemary Odinga’s case of getting her sight back after losing her sight for some time.
The mother of two is getting back to the simplicities of life like updating images on her Instagram page, something she hasn’t done for close to 4 years.
The caption to her beautiful photo as she enjoyed time in nature read, “stronger than ever.”
Some of the comments to her post are below:

The last photo she had posted on her Instagram page was with Jalang’o in November 2016, shortly before she started having her medical diagnosis which began a long and arduous journey back to getting her sight back.
Her illness first manifested in 2017 when she collapsed moments before addressing a women’s leadership training. She was then rushed to hospital in an ambulance.
She later on related that she had had a terrible headache the night before and all but dismissed it. She was later diagnosed with a brain tumour which was coupled by an aneurysm before she slipped into a coma.
In a past interview, her father Raila explained how a brilliant team of 10 Chinese surgeons had saved her life in a 10-hour operation at prestigious Peking University.
The former PM said that her life was saved in China after three months of unsuccessful treatment in South Africa and Israel.
Mr. Odinga also revealed that Rosemary regained her sight after getting a herbal treatment in India.
“We got to a point where we nearly gave up as a family after unsuccessfully visiting many hospitals including in Germany, China and South Africa before she was finally healed in India,” he said.
“Doctors in South Africa said she will never regain her sight. However, a friend introduced us to a doctor in India who used herbal medicine to help her recover,” he said
