Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) leader Raila Odinga has disclosed that his family’s net worth is about KSh2 billion.
Speaking during an interview with NTV on Sunday night, Odinga stated that he does not consider himself rich, adding that a majority of his wealth is in the form of property and company shares.
“People say I’m very rich. I am not rich. I am just about Sh2 billion which we own collectively as the Odinga family,” Odinga noted, adding that his Karen house is valued at KSh300 million.
Odinga became the first highest-ranking politician in the country to publicly disclose his wealth.
He, at the same time, dismissed claims that his family has used its political influence to amass well for itself, noting that his father Jaramogi Oginga Odinga died a poor man.
“Our father Odinga died a poor man. There is nothing we inherited from him as his children. It must be remembered that throughout his life that he was in government for only two and a half years,” Raila said.
He stressed that his siblings, just like other Kenyans, are earning salaries from their jobs which they got competitively.
