Today marked the fifth death anniversary of Fidel Odinga with fond memories of him.
Fidel died on the morning of January 4, 2015 in his Karen home after a night out with friends.
Fidel, who kept his family away from the public eye, left behind his Eritrean wife Lwam Gatachew Bekele and a son
Fidel divorced his first wife Veronica Wanjiru over what were viewed as ‘irreconcilable’ differences.
He tied the knot for the second time with his Eritrean lover in a low-key ceremony, which took place at the Orthodox Church in July 28, 2012 in Nairobi.
Unlike his much-publicised 2007 wedding ceremony, which was full of pomp and colour, his second one was a closely guarded and invites-only ceremony.
