¨I do oppose most things my dad says, not that I don´t love him; but because I have my stand in life.¨

Raila Junior clarified during an interview with Radio Jambo on Tuesday.

It is definite that Raila Odinga and his son, do not seem to be following similar paths career-wise and in their beliefs.

¨But at home, we do talk, encourage each other and share good memories together.¨ Raila Junior added.

The loss of their brother, Fidel Odinga, had such a huge impact on his siblings.

To them, Fidel was their protector and his untimely demise made it a tough road for the family.

Raila Junior was later diagnosed with facial paralysis.

    • Yet to establish that.
      But maybe he was caught up in his political life and was yet to emotionally connect with the son.
      Kids generally react to physical and emotional touch, I think.
