Former Prime Minister Raila Odinga’s wife has gone ham on football darling – turned politician – McDonald Mariga.
Ida Odinga was speaking at an event in Kisumu where she made fun of Mariga’s woes with IEBC after he was barred from running for the Kibra MP seat.
The position fell vacant after Ken Okoth died after a long battle with cancer.
Ida said that Mariga should have just stuck with the sport that took him across the world rather than throwing his hat into the political ring.

She even went ahead to compare him to Dennis Oliech saying that after the career change, Mariga’s legacy will go down the drain.
“Have you heard of the name Dennis Oliech? What has he excelled in? Football isn’t it? Think of Mariga, I can not use that as a good example because, when he changed the profession, you see how he failed,” Ida told the crowd at the Kisumu event.
“If he would have stuck to football he would do much much better,” Ida added.
