In an interview with Michael Gitonga a few years ago, Winnie also disclosed that she works in the energy industry.

Winnie Odinga Politics

The 31-year-old has frequently been questioned about her aspirations to follow in her father’s footsteps and enter politics. Winnie has consistently responded with a “no,” adding that she does not believe it would be a good fit for her because she does not support a political career but rather people who choose to become politicians because they perceive a need they can fill.

However, she was recently nominated to the East African Legislative Assembly (EALA) by the Azimio la Umoja coalition subject to approval by the parliament.


Winnie Odinga is a devoted member of the family. She was born to Mama Ida and Raila Amolo Odinga. She is the youngest of the three Raila Odinga’s children and the late Fidel Odinga. Since her siblings were much older than she was, Winnie spent the majority of her childhood by herself.
