‘Raila is good but he mentored no one to succeed him’-Sylvanus Osoro

By Antynet Ford

South Mugirango Member of Parliament Sylvanus Osoro has stated that ODM leader Raila Odinga is a good man with extensive networks across the continent but has failed to mentor his successor.

He said that if the former Prime Minister exits the national politics, he will leave behind a void that will be difficult to fill.

“You see the problem with Raila is that everyone around him does not grow to become greater in politics. Only those he mentored and who ditched him go ahead to make it in politics. If you stick around him, you don’t progress politically because everything is about him.” Osoro said.

He added that despite his deep networks and national politics craftsmanship, Raila was unlucky not to become president of Kenya.

Speaking during an interview with an online platform, the National Assembly Majority Whip said Raila’s networks run deeper than those of President William Ruto, describing him as the ideal man for the African Union Commission chairman position.

“Raila is not a bad person by the way. He has very deep networks than even President Ruto, and I want to assure you that he will get the AUC seat. And President Ruto is doing everything possible to make sure that he gets that seat.” Osoro said.

Osoro put Raila in the league of the late President Mwai Kibaki, saying he has played a key role in shaping the country’s political course.

President Ruto’s administration has thrown its weight behind Raila’s bid for the AUC seat, with the most recent being a trip to Uganda where Ruto and Raila met President Yoweri Museveni to ask for his support.

The president has promised to do everything in his capacity to ensure Raila gets the seat.
