Raila Amollo Odinga-Kenya Opposition Leader

Raila Amollo Odinga-Kenya Opposition Leader

He is arguably one of the most visible opposition leaders who enjoys near fanatical following in most regions of Kenya. Raila Odinga has for a long time been the posterboy of opposition in Kenya and Africa by extension since the 80’s. His attempts to overthrow President Daniel Arap Moi in 1982 landed him in detention for six years. Raila served as MP for Kibra before joining his ‘tormentor’ Moi to serve in his government as Minister of Energy in 2001. Agwambo, as the doyen of Kenyan opposition is popularly known, instigated an internal rebellion that caused Key leaders to ditch Moi and form the Rainbow coalition. Raila, who served as Kenya second Prime Minister, is leading countrywide crusades in Kenya to demand the ouster of the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commissions (IEBC) commissioners accusing them of being biased.
