Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party leader Raila Odinga dismisses the hustler vs dynasty politics, saying his late father Jaramogi Odinga did not have anything but poor and pulled up ranks.


He spoke and dismissed a section of Kenyan politicians vending the tale, challenging them of selling a fallacy.


The ODM chief explained how his father-dirt poor at the time- was helpless to fund his education and often dependent on relatives.


He says Jaramogi at one time stayed with a relative who paid his school fees because he had given up on his education for lack of money.


Speaking in Kisumu during a golf tournament to honour 27th anniversary for Jaramogi, Odinga said even his tenure as a minister and vice president in the late Mzee Kenyatta government was a shortlived.


The hustler vs dynasty politics began by the DP Ruto wing whose allies have alleged that is time for Kenyan hustlers to rise to top jobs.
