The relationship between Francis Atwoli and Raila Odinga was revealed last year by Raila during an event at Ogande Girls High in Homa Bay County. This was during an event that was led by Raila's wife, Ida Odinga who was a former student of Ogande Girls thus has rallied for a harambee that was to raise funds for the school to build a mordern library.

Ida Odinga thus invited her husband Raila as the Chief Guest. When he was invited, Raila Odinga took it to the podium whereby at one point started to describe his wife's journey to success. It is here that Raila mentioned his relationship with Francis Atwoli
