Meet Raila Odinga’s Daughter The Only Snail Farmer In Africa Earning Millions From It

Rosemary Odinga, the second child of ex-Prime Minister Raila Odinga, was born on August 13, 1977.

Stunning and bold, this woman has a BA in Sociology from Howard University and an MA in Marketing from the University of Dallas. As a businesswoman, her primary focus is on raising snails.

Inspired by then-President of Nigeria Olusegun Obasanjo, Rosemary launched a successful snail company in 2007.

At the University of Nairobi, she was instructed by a snail expert who provided her with a thorough grounding in all things snail-related.

By obtaining a permission from the Kenya Wildlife Service, Rosemary established up her own business, Farm Shelltops Limited, from which she operates a nursery greenhouse to cultivate her snails.

Rosemary earns millions from exporting the snails to regions like Asia, Europe, and even West Africa.

Due to its high levels of iron and calcium, snail meat is also beneficial for growing children, nursing mothers, and those who are planning to get pregnant.
