Veteran Political Analyst Dismus Mokua, has now alleged on why former Prime Minister Raila Odinga has been successful in national politics despite losing the top seat for a record five consecutive times.

In a statement, Mokua said that the ODM Party leader, has had an impressive political trajectory in the country with most top politicians and government officials having associated with him.

Mokua said that Mr Odinga has mentored many politicians in the country and who majority of them have abandoned him for President William Ruto.

Among them include Cabinet Secretaries; Dr Alfred Mutua, Salim Mvurya, Eliud Owalo, Aden Duale and Aisha Jumwa, Senate Speaker Amason Kingi, National Assembly Speaker Moses Wetangula and Prime Cabinet Secretary Musalia Mudavadi.

"In fact, one can say Mr Odinga has mentored many politicians and runs a successful political school. However, he has several challenges as he strives to be president as he lacks the killer instinct, having failed to demonstrate a ruthless determination to succeed or win a presidential election," said Mokua.
