About Raila Odinga
Raila Amolo Odinga can be described as a doyen of Kenyan politics. He served as the Member of Parliament for the Langata Constituency in 1992 until 2013 and also contested in the 2007 presidential elections. Although he lost, the violence which erupted following the result declaration in favor of the incumbent Mwai Kibaki led to the creation of a power-sharing government and his subsequent appointment as the Prime Minister of Kenya. He lost his second bid for the presidency in 2017 to Uhuru Kenyatta.
He was born to Mary Ajuma and Jaramogi Oginga Odinga, Kenya’s first Vice President. He had four children with his wife, Ida. Their eldest son died in 2014.
He has honorary doctorate degrees from the Florida A&M University and Limkokwing University of Creative Technology.
In 2019, he was accused by other Kenyan political leaders of being involved in a gold sale scam, which resulted in the loss of millions of dollars by UAE royal family.
