7 things you didn't know about Raila's daughter-Winnie Odinga

Here are 7 things you did not know about Winnie Odinga

1. She is Raila Odinga's, right man

Winnie Odinga works for her father.

"I have worked for my father for as long as I can remember. I'm his bodyguard, his brief case carrier, travel companion or even driver if need be."

2. She loves old school hip hop

Like most 80's babies, Winnie is into old school hip hop. In an interview with one of the local dailies, she confessed to being a major Tupac fan. She said, "Tupac any day. I mean he was a poet and everything. He was also aggressive. However, Biggie was alright too."

However, she loves dancing to Benga music.

3. Winnie is a total tomboy

Catch her dead carrying a handbag. Winnie doesn't wear heels but she loves boots and sneakers. Buying her a bandage dress? Don't. Unlike most girls, Winnie prefers her outfits comfortable and free.

4. She hates attention

Being the daughter of one of Kenya's most highly sort after politicians have its perks and disadvantages. One of them is getting too much attention. Winnie says that while she loves her father, she'd rather not be associated with his celebrity life. "I hate it. It holds me back. I can't have a private life and taking pictures the whole time is not quite what I consider having a good time. I love to live for the moment, talking to new people and appreciating nice vibes. However, I love being my father's daughter. Nobody gets me like he does."

5. She's a genius

Seems like Winnie took after her father in the intellectual sector. She has a double major degree in International Business and Corporate Communications from Philidelphia, United States.

6. She doesn't want to be a politician

Winnie knows her strengths and it's not in politics. She said, " There won't be any need for me to join Parliament to be called Mheshimiwa just for the sake of it yet I don't get to bring forth or contribute to any meaningful policies five years down the line. I want a fulfilling life that I can get to do something meaningful with."

7. She is a philanthropist

Last year, Winnie faced angry Kenyans when she suggested that Kenyan Househelps should be paid Ksh50,000 per month.

She responded to the saga saying, " People thought that I was just throwing around figures that I have no idea about. I'm just appalled that we don't stop to think that even house helps with kids have their own personal aspirations. We have become too consumed with ourselves, it's all about us improving ourselves and to hell with the rest. If you can afford it, why not uplift the people that take care of you and your kids to be really among 'us'? "
