Winnie Odinga Reveals Raila's Smart Move That Will See Him Garner Move Votes In August

Winnie Odinga's childhood as Raila Odinga's daughter wasn't easy. Azimio la Umoja-presidential One's candidate is Raila. Winnie, a popular character in her father's campaigns, appears comfortable atop a car on the campaign road or at a formal gathering. Winnie's take-no-prisoners social media posture has earned her both admirers and foes.

Winnie is an introvert who doesn't feel remarkable because she's Raila's daughter. She loves her family and wants normal family routines. "Being Raila's daughter is nothing remarkable; I'm just a community member. Now, instead of Sunday lunch or church, her family campaigns, she stated on Spice FM's Double O Direct. Winnie's 'family guy' father worries that the political season has prevented them from spending time together. She enjoys working in her father's presidential administration and counseling him on youth issues. She says she's learned to gauge 'the boss's mood before bringing up certain topics. "If I get a certain answer, I hang up. She smiled and replied, "Only talk to the boss when he's happy."

Winnie is thrilled that her father chose Narc Kenya leader Martha Karua as his running mate. She believes this makes him popular with people and could make her the first female vice president if Raila wins. Winnie believes Karua's CEO position will allow her to directly empower women. Winnie is urging Kenyans to vote for her father on August 9.

Raila will be Kenya's first female vice president if elected. Winnie stated, "Let's see what influence that will have on Kenyan women if we support their candidacy." "If you want real change, vote for that ticket," she said. We're at the reflection point; no more sidelines. We can choose.” She believes the Azimio agenda will handle problems like unemployment, corruption, and public indebtedness since the coalition party has a clear strategy to put Kenya back on its feet. Half of Azimio's budget goes to social safety, universal healthcare, and free university education. We aim to create other revenue sources to absorb unemployed kids and build our economy with the other half, she said.

Winnie thinks the economy will flourish if the country produces branded things instead of raw commodities. "With enough money, the government can settle foreign loans and lower taxation." Winnie hopes to launch a political consulting firm after the elections, but for now, she's focused on making Raila president.
