ODM leader Raila Odinga on Sunday penned down a heartfelt message to celebrate mothers.
In honouring Mother's Day, Odinga recalled how the mum passed away while he was in detention.
"My mother passed away while I was in detention. I was formally informed about it two months after her demise. My mother like the millions of others was special and unique.
Just like Mother Earth, they make the world a better place; they love us unconditionally, and oh man they can multi-task. It’s Mother’s Day. I single out single mums today. Happy Mother’s Day!" Odinga's statement read.
