The daughter of Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) pioneer Raila Odinga was talking on Spice FM when acaller made the claims about the Odinga family.
The said caller who was identified as Charity from Ruiru said that Winnie was ill equipped to respond to questions regarding the issues facing Kenyans.
“We are asking questions to someone who can actually not answer. I do not think that she knows what it means to work, we have to do away with dynasty families. This is because they do not know the problems that we have down here and therefore there is no way they can give us a solution. It is ridiculous that we are doing mistakes over and over again,” said Charity.
The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of The BrickHouse Counsel however quick to address the guest saying the Odinga family has suffered greatly for the sake of the country.
“I do not believe she can be talking about me when we talk about dynasties. I do not believe that we can talk about Jaramogi Odinga in the worst place in this country in Hola Detention Camp and Raila Odinga following with eight years in detention.
“I do not know that she knows the life I have lived with policemen surrounding my house and guns to my head. I do not believe she knows the floors I have slept in, floors my mother has slept in, my siblings have slept in for this country and I do not expect her to know. I do not believe it is correct to judge a story when you do not know the whole story,” she said.
