The decision by Odinga’s daughter has sparked discussion on potential Raila succession plans.

If the veteran opposition leader decides to hang up his boots following his fifth unsuccessful presidential bid in August, Winnie, the most politically engaged member of the Odinga family, is being cited as a potential successor.

“Yes, she is among the applicants and will be one of the candidates our party will consider when the list will be finally referred to the political parties,” a senior ODM MP affirmed.

Political analysts have observed that the 31-year-old’s decision to run for office in the regional Parliament is the most obvious sign that she is considering succeeding her father, who has controlled the nation’s political scene for decades.

However, Winnie is not completely new to politics since she has been playing a significant role in her father’s presidential campaigns, particularly in the most recent two elections in 2017 and 2022.

She played a key role in energizing the youth to support Azimio, something she did with fire and zest, occasionally coming into conflict with several of Raila’s allies. Winnie will be the second member of the Odinga family to represent the nation at the regional parliament if the list is approved by the bipartisan team of Senate and National Assembly members reviewing it.
