Rosemary Odinga, Leading Snail Farmer In East Africa

Raila's Daughter Hits Goldmine in Snail Farming BusinessGiant African and New Zealand Land Snails: Fascinating Animals - OwlcationThe Orange Democratic Movement Party leader Raila Odinga's daughter madam Rosemary Odinga is the leading farmer in East Africa who is venturing in the rare farming of snails. Rosemary Odinga is now a mother of two and unlike her younger sister, she has distanced herself with politics and concentrated with farming as her major focus as it is portrayed in her social media posts. Despite losing her eyesight in 2017 after suffering from stroke, madam Rosemary did not lose hope in this unique farming as WoK reveals having started it as hobby in 2007.

Rosemary's idea of farming snails emanated from a privilege she got to meet with the former Nigerian President Olesegun Obasanjo. Olesegun is one of the biggest snails farmer and therefore he is the one who gave Rosemary the idea of venturing into snail farming in which Rosemary promised him to do something when she comes back home. "Before I started, I had gone to Nigeria where I had the privilege of visiting former Nigerian president Olesegun Obasanjo. He is one of the biggest snail farmers there. He is the one who challenged me to think about farming...I promised to do something when I came back home,” Rosemary stated. Rosemary's snails farm is roughly estimated to be 2.5 acres in size. She has however managed to pursue the rare farming through consultations, learning the different snail breeds, behaviors, market demographics, and environmental preferences.
