Raila’s Sister-Adhiambo Odinga Goes for Nyong’o Seat Ahead of 2022.
Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party leader Raila Odinga is among the leading politicians in the country seeking to succeed President Uhuru after his term ends in 2022.
Raila faces great competition from the deputy President who is still being viewed as the most preferred candidate by Kenyans. With no doubt, the two seasoned politicians will lock horns in 2022.
In Kisumu County, Raila’s sister Adhiambo Odinga has declared interest in running for the Kisumu Governor’s seat in the next General election.
Adhiambo, who served as the Deputy Governor between 2013-2017 is set to compete against Governor Anyang Nyongo for the ODM ticket.
Adhiambo feels she is the ideal candidate and she believed she has the potential to lead the lakeside city and develop the county for the benefit of residents.
Adhiambo is favored by her political class but has urged her voters to vote her in for her manifesto and not her name. Her declaration comes just months after Raila urged Kisumu residents to give Nyongo one more term.
