Nairobi - Prime Minister Raila Odinga comes across from his former aide’s new book as a hardened, crafty political operative with a complex view on electoral strategy and a multi-layered team of advisers often at odds with each other.
According to Daily Nation, Miguna Miguna, who until they fell out was one of the PM’s top allies and confidantes, says Raila relies, above all, on a close team of relatives and political partners.
At the heart of that group is a small circle of relatives and senior employees in the Office of the Prime Minister, including his wife Ida, and he is advised by a “think tank” which, Miguna writes in his new memoirs, Peeling Back the Mask: A Quest for Justice in Kenya, by a number of informal advisers over the past few years.
