What happened to Raila Odinga?

Now that Kenya’s Vice President William Ruto has defeated Raila Odinga in the election, Kenya’s fifth President will soon take office.

Contesting the election, Odinga outlined his ten-point plan and referred to “popular programs” as his vision for the nation.

He continued, “I, Raila Amolo Odinga, have worked with many patriotic Kenyans to achieve these goals, having been staunch and determined to build a democratic and progressive national Kenya in our lifetime.”

In accordance with the desire and unanimous decision of this Azimio la Umoja, I hereby agree to stand for the presidential election of August 9, 2022.

Fidel, her son, was born in 1973 but tragically died in 2015. Rosemary, Odinga’s other child, was born in 1977 and is now possibly 45 years old.

Her other child, Raila Jr., was born in 1979 and Winnie, a student at Drexel University in Philadelphia, was born in 1990.

How did Raila Odinga get out of it?

In his fifth bid for the candidacy, Raila Odinga faced stiff opposition from William Ruto and his party.

With a first-round victory of 50.49% of the vote, Ruto will soon become Kenya’s sixth president. Odinga, who has publicly expressed his vision and purpose, today maintains his isolation.

People are currently rejoicing in the electoral fervor and wishing the newly elected president well. Hopefully former Prime Minister Raila will speak out on the election in the coming days.
