Although Orange Democratic Movement party leader and former Prime Minister Raila Odinga has remained tight-lipped on his future political plans and whether he intends to run again for a sixth time in 2027, his family weighed in on the issue.

Winnie Odinga was speaking during an exclusive interview on Citizen TV on the channel’s show which was hosted by station’s presenter Waihiga Mwaura.

Winnie, when asked about her father’s 2027 plans and whether he intends to still vie for the presidency, stayed clear of the matter, explaining that she knows nothing of the issue, and that the only person equipped enough to answer the question is Raila Odinga himself.

The Odinga scion who was recently nominated to the East African Legislative Assembly spoke out on a variety of issues.

Just last week, the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party revealed the names of six nominees to the East African Legislative Assembly (EALA).

The party, in a statement, nominated Winnie Odinga, daughter to ODM Party leader Raila Odinga, Mombasa businessman Suleiman Shahbal, former Kitutu Masaba MP, and the party’s National Treasurer Timothy Bosire, Former Turkana Water and Irrigation CEC Beatrice Askul, former Shinyalu MP Justus Kizito and Mohammed Diriye (Wajir).
ODM said the selection was presided over by the party’s deputy leader Wycliffe Oparanya a day to the announcement, and narrowed down to the final six.
287 people were shortlisted for the nomination as representatives to EALA.

Kenya has nine seats in the regional parliament, as Kenya Kwanza and Azimio jostle for positions. Kenya Kwanza will get five out of nine seats being the majority in Parliamanent, while Azimio will get four seats.
Kenya Kwanza has fronted former Mombasa Senator Hassan Omar, former Laikipia Woman Representative Catherine Waruguru, Anne Too and Falhad Imad, among others, while Jubilee Party has nominated former Ndaragwa MP Jeremiah Kioni, Kanini Kega, former Wajir Woman Rep Fatuma Gedi and others.
The inspection of the nomination papers will took place on November 10 and 11 from 9 am to 4 pm.
