When ODM nominated Millie Odhiambo to Parliament in 2007, little did she imagine that she will have one of the most successful political careers in the country.

Fast forward, 14 years later, the fiery politician has become one of the most powerful female legislators in the country.

In Parliament, Odhiambo is one of the most vocal MPs and has sponsored many progressive Bills.

In Nyanza where she hails from, Odhiambo is the longest serving MP in the region where ODM leader Raila Odinga reigns supreme.

After serving as Nominated MP for five years, the University of Nairobi-trained lawyer was elected as Mbita MP during the 2013 general election.

In 2017, with the constituency renamed Suba North, she was re-elected for a second term even as her popularity soared.

A key Raila disciple, the 55-year old legislator has also emerged as Deputy President William Ruto's fiercest critic and never hesitates to take him head on when given an opportunity.

Over the last few weeks, the legislator has amplified his attacks on the DP whom she accuses of disrespecting President Uhuru Kenyatta.

Before the 2017 general election, Odhiambo was a fierce critic of the President. But today, after the 2018 handshake deal between Uhuru and Raila, the lawmaker has emerged as the President's staunch defenders.

But for Ruto, MP Odhiambo is his biggest headache in the South Nyanza region.
