“I do oppose things he says, but at home, we do talk, encourage each other and share good memories together.”
Losing his brother Fidel Odinga was a big blow to Raila Junior and his siblings, he said. This is because Fidel was their protector, and his death was the hardest time they had undergone as a family.
Jnr was born with a tumour, which affected his brain and later distorted his facial features. It was later diagnosed as facial paralysis.
Junior, who is a producer, said people do not give him a job because he is the son of a well-known politician or comes from a famous family, but because of his high professionalism.
Months ago, Raila Junior’s sister Rosemary Odinga lost her sight partially due to a tumour, a condition that saw her hospitalised for months.
Raila Junior told Massawe his sister’s condition has greatly improved.
“First and foremost, I want to thank God for healing my sister Rosemary, who was sick for some months,” he said.
“She is not like the way she was for the first time, and I hope she will be OK in future,” he said.
Talking about his family, Junior said they stayed for five years without his wife giving birth.
“We had a lot of pressure from our friends and family. So the thing I could do was to encourage my wife because I knew she was also going under that pressure. Finally, God blessed us with a baby boy,“ Junior said.
He does not have any ambition for politics. Rather, he is concentrating on his businesses. He also said as a family, they did not stop his father Raila from swearing himself in as the People’s President because they were the one who pushed him to do so.
