Daughter to ODM Leader Raila Odinga has told off Kibra parliamentary aspirant Eliud Owalo who has urged the Odingas to keep off other political seats if they want their father to ascend to the Presidency.
Owalo, who declared his candidature for Kibera seat last year and has traversed the low income informal settlement (slum) constituency was quoted in a section of local media urging the Odingas to concentrate on the Presidential race.
Rosemary, who made her first ‘official’ tour of the constituency has shot back, telling her detractors that her father’s political future should be de-linked from her prospects.
“The fact that my father was at one time Member of Parliament for Kibra does not take away my right as a Kenyan to vie for that position. Let me ask you a simple question. Wouldn’t you work in government or a company simply because your father once worked there?” she posted on Facebook.
