I am not against Raila Odinga being the President of this country but there is something about him that puts off voters, political greed. The level of political greed in the Odinga family is getting out of hand and it’ll affect his presidential ambitions some day.
Kenya has had four presidents already. Unlike Rails Odinga, none of the four heads of state has paraded his relations for elective positions. The best they did was to offer them support.
For Raila, it is just too much. His relatives are sharing political offices even before elections. This is their line up
1) President – Raila Odinga aka Baba
2) Siaya Governor – Jakoyo Midiwo/Oburu Odinga
3) Kisumu Governor – Ruth Odinga
4) Ambassador to USA – Dr. Wenwa Odinga
5) Kibra MP – Rosemary Odinga
6 )Winnie Odinga – to be confirmed
The Odinga family must be reminded that the former heads of state has relatives too but they never took advantages of their candidature to pilfer the rights of other qualified candidates. If this persists, it might be the best weapon for the Jubilee Alliance Party against them and it might work well against Raila.
