Kenyan PM Odinga leaves hospital after surgery

Kenyan Prime Minister Raila Odinga was discharged from hospital on Sunday after a minor operation to relieve pressure on his brain earlier this week.

Odinga, 65, planted a commemorative tree and gave a brief speech outside the hospital, thanking doctors, his family and the general public for their support.

The operation forced Odinga to break off the campaign for a new constitution being carried out by the grand coalition government he leads with President Mwai Kibaki. They are pushing for a yes vote in an August 4 referendum.

Newspapers said Odinga was expected to rest at home for two weeks before returning to work.

Opinion polls have indicated the draft constitution, whose passage is seen as important for investor confidence, is likely to win broad approval.

The draft constitution includes the entrenchment of Muslim kadhi courts in the draft and a clause allowing abortion under certain circumstances.
