Homa Bay woman representative Gladys Wanga on Friday divulged that Opposition leader, Raila Odinga’s wife, Ida Odinga is her political mentor.
Speaking to Citizen TV, Wanga noted that Odinga’s wife discovered her potential early enough and mentored her.
According to her, she further revealed that despite her undying support for Mr Odinga, the ODM leader had never met her before 2013.
She stated: “Before I got into politics in 2013, I was not known by Raila Odinga.
“Actually it is Mama Ida Odinga (Raila’s wife) who took interest and said this girl she must have something and sort of encouraged me and mentored me,” she divulged.
The mother of two stated that she owes her political success to Mama Ida Odinga.
The 38-year-old was elected as Homa Bay Woman Rep in 2013 on an ODM ticket, before being reelected in 2017.
She narrated that after launching her campaigns, she received cash donations from her colleagues which she used to fuel her car and travel all the way to Homabay to campaign.
The seasoned politician then declared her intention to vie for the county top seat in 2022 polls.
