Raila Odinga had been arrested and detained at the Shimo La Tewa prison after he was suspected of having been behind the attempted coup detat that almost made the former president Daniel Toroitich Arap Moi lose power.

He served at the prison to a point that his mother died and he did not get to meet her since he would only get to know later on that his mother had passed on.

"It was through George Anyona, a close confidant confined to a different block at Shimo la Tewa prison that I learned of my mother’s death on November 5th, 1984. I had never believed in a sixth sense, but my time in detention showed me that it does exist and that it is very powerful, particularly when use of other senses is denied,"Raila Odinga disclosed before.
