Meet Raila's Most Powerful Confidante Who Has Been Entrusted To Deliver Baba's 2022 Presidential Win

Raila Odinga is working with a huge team as he aims to scoop the presidential seat this year. Some of the Raila's aide like Junet Mohammed or Orengo are well known to the public but there are some who have maintained a low profile despite the huge role they play

A good example is Oduor Ong'wen who is ranked as the most loyal confidante of Raila Odinga. Ong'wen currently works as the Executive Director of ODM, a position he has held for over 10 years. As the Executive Director of ODM, Ong'wen is in charge of Finance, Communication, Political Affairs and Strategy and Memberships Recruitment

Ong'wen is known for his no nonsense attitude and is thus feared by all ODM politicians. He is always besides Raila in all important meetings and is amongst the people who have been trusted to deliver Raila's presidential win

The relationship between Raila and Ong'wen did not start today but in the 90's whereby both were arrested by President Moi for allegedly taking part in the 1982 failed coup. By then, Ong'wen was a student leader at the University of Nairobi
