A good example is the Odinga family which has since independence produced two leader of oppositions. This includes former Vice President Jaramogi Odinga and his son, Raila Odinga who is currently the ODM Party leader.
With Raila Odinga aging, questions have risen on who might be the next person from this family to raise their family's political flag high once Raila retires
Fidel Odinga, Raila's first born son was the obvious answer since he was everywhere in company of his father more so during rallies and in the meeting of political heavyweights. However, Fidel Odinga died
Raila Odinga now left with three children, Raila seems to have handpicked Winnie Odinga as his preferred successor when it come to politics. This was evident when Raila made Winnie Odinga to accompany her during the inauguration of Zambia's new President, Hakainde Hichilema.
This is not the first political meeting Raila has been accompanied by her daughter Winnie. When Uhuru Kenyatta and Raila Odinga were invited by the former President of USA Donald Trump at Whitehouse after their handshake, Winnie Odinga was also present
Winnie Odinga was set to contest for the Kibra Constituency seat in 2017, a seat that was long held by her father but bowed out in the last minute since she had to attend surgery in South Africa
