Details of Raila’s trusted inner circle that puts him ahead of DP Ruto in the 2022 Statehouse race


Former Prime Minister Raila Odinga has assembled a lean team of trusted allies who make major political decisions and reach out to both his allies and political enemies, making him the most formidable opponent to face off with DP Ruto.


Recent political developments, consultative meetings as well as discussions of possible alliances have had familiar faces featuring through, leaving no doubt that the ODM party leader trusts the lean team with his political future.


James Orengo
The Siaya Senator is a trusted ally with a solid relationship matured through the decades of the struggle for multi-party democracy.


Commonly referred to as “The Walking Constitution” Orengo is tasked with thrashing all things legal for the ODM party leader.


He is backed by an able team of legal luminaries including Rarieda MP Otiende Amollo and TJ Kajwang, leaving Raila one step ahead of his competitors.


Junet Mohammed
The Suna East MP has earned his place at the center of Raila’s team.
His loyalty to Raila is unquestionable and hilariously remarked in parliament that he is willing to be “Baba’s cow”.


When it comes to taking the Tanga Tanga rhetoric and propaganda head-on, Junet is the man who tackles the DP Ruto brigade with witty comments laced in humor and exposing their soft underbelly.


Hassan Joho
The flamboyant Mombasa governor is a trusted ally and among the few (alongside Junet) who visited Raila last year when the ODM party leader flew to Dubail for medical assistance.

Being a man of able means, Joho has proved that he cannot be bought and has often faced off with Odinga’s critics.


He is also trusted with tackling DP Ruto’s attempts to win over the Coast region, keeping the region united and solidly in ODM.


Gladys Wanga
The vocal Homabay Woman Representative is not only eloquent but is also well informed with deep networks and mobilization skills.


While DP Ruto is surrounded by a host of women representatives championing his 2022 agenda, Wanga has on numerous occasions served the Tanga Tanga brigade with good wisdom, silencing the rhetoric on several occasions.


A case in point is when the Tanga Tanga brigade attempted to distance themselves from the current administration, she quickly reminded them that they are part of the same administration.
