Ida Odinga and Yvonne Wambua’s Relationship
Yvonne expressed her feelings towards Ida as extending far beyond the typical mother-in-law relationship.
She expressed her growing love and admiration for her, acknowledging the invaluable life lessons she has received under her guidance.
Rather than referring to her as a mother-in-law, Yvonne emphasized that Ida is her mentor. She has imparted her wisdom about life, marriage, and the art of nurturing.
Yvonne feels fortunate to have Ida as a maternal figure in her life and acknowledges the humility that comes with learning from someone of her stature.
“I have grown to love my mother-in-law, and I can’t even call her my mother-in-law because she is actually my mentor.
“She has taught me a lot about life, marriage and how to be a strong and nurturing mother. I’m very proud to call her my mother-in-law, and I aspire to follow in her footsteps,” Yvonne said.

She acknowledged that she and Raila Junior have much to learn from the experiences and teachings of their parents.
