The BIGGEST mistake Jaramogi Oginga Odinga made was to baby-sit Mzee Jomo Kenyatta as Kenya's 1st president, the hyphen of these woes.
Journalist: What is your family’s relationship with Uhuru Kenyatta? Ruth Odinga (Raila's sister): You will not believe what I’m about to say but it is the truth. There is no bad relationship between Uhuru and Raila as people put it; the two have a long history. When we were young, Raila would carry us (Uhuru and I) on his back and we grew up together as family friends. When our father (Jaramogi Oginga Odinga) was vice-president and Mzee Jomo Kenyatta was the President, we would visit each other. Uhuru would even visit us in our home in Kisumu and we would also visit them. At times I ask why they are hitting at each other. The friends you make earlier in life are your friends forever and that is the truth. We were friends and forever we will remain friends. Source: Sunday Nation
H:E Mzee Jomo Kenyatta and H:E Jaramogi Oginga Odinga planted the seeds of TRIBALISM & CORRUPTION. Instead of...
THE KENYA WE WANT; MY OWN PERSPECTIVE Our fathers, the likes of Mzee Jomo Kenyatta, Tom Mboya, Jaramogi Oginga Odinga, Dedan Kimathi, among others, fought to free us from colonial rule. Many of them were mistreated, tortured and even some of them were killed by our colonisers. There was more than enough blood-shed during that time and independence/self-rule was something anticipated for by every Kenyan. Their struggle bore fruits over 50 years ago when Kenya was granted its independence. However, the politics in the country became dirtier after independence. Political assasinations, torture and even the banning of the multi-party politics, were some of the injustices that prevailed during Jomo's and Moi's rule. Kenya's good politicians like J. M. Kariuki and Robert Ouko were killed. It all seemed like Kenya was being taken back to the colonial era. Good-willed Kenyans tried to fight the injustices in different ways but they failed oftenly since they didn't join hands and anybody who seemed to differ with ...
THE GHOST of the perennial political rivalry that existed between Kenya's founding father, Mzee Jomo Kenyatta, and the doyen of opposition politics Jaramogi Oginga Odinga is apparently making an unwelcome return 50 years on...HISTORY REPEATING ITSELF? The then vice president Jaramogi Odinga fell out with Mzee Kenyatta, Kenya's first president and KANU supremo, over ideological dynamics and conflicting governing policies which saw maverick Ker Jaramogi and his allies isolated and detained. Subsequently, a silent animosity between Jaramogi's ethnic Luo and Mzee's Kikuyu people started building up. A lot of water has gone under the bridge since that time. Nevertheless, a similar showdown albeit 'digital' is looming between the favourite sons of the two independence heroes; Uhuru Kenyatta-the incumbent president and Jubilee leader versus former premier Raila Odinga-CORD's strongman and the most seasoned opposition politician in Kenya today. The bone of contention is definitely different from their now decease ...

We are now being told that the South Sudan conflict is political, not ethnic. Similarly, Kenyans were largely made to believe that the differences between Mzee Jomo Kenyatta and Jaramogi Oginga Odinga were ideological, not tribal. If the differences between the two were ideological, why did the Kikuyu-Luo animosity persist even after the death of the two leaders? Why didn't the animosity end with the end of the Cold War? But almost 25 years after the Fall of the Iron Curtain, the ethnic hatred, political differences and tribal animosity between the Kikuyu and the Luo communities are so deep-rooted and more menacing that they threaten even our very existence. Bottomline, the conflict in South Sudan is ethnic and must be nipped in the bud now or tomorrow it will be too late!
According to that NTV documentary, there were only two groups who stood to benefit from the Tom Mboya assassination; KANU politicians who wanted to succeed Mzee Jomo Kenyatta and Jaramogi Oginga Odinga and his supporters, Kenyatta himself had everything to loose and nothing to gain from the killing. The two groups were involved in a cut throat race to influence who would succeed the old man who as Koigi wa Wamwere said, was so old and sickly that it was obvious he wouldn't last long, the question was when. As to who between the two groups eliminated Tom, your guess is as good as mine!
After analyzing what Mandela did, am convinced that Mzee Jomo Kenyatta and Jaramogi Oginga Odinga did more to Kenya that Mandela did South Africa.
Tribalism in Kenya began when Jaramogi Oginga Odinga wrote "NOT YET UHURU" and then Mzee Jomo Kenyatta began telling members of his community that Jaramogi wanted to fight them and give their land to his community
ICC trials against the 3 Kenyan suspects is a tall order. But, then, just asking...What major role did the late Mzee Jaramogi Oginga Odinga play in ensuring the release from jail of our country's founding father the late Mzee Jomo Kenyatta?
The Burden of Being a Luo in Kenya Being a member of any ethnic group in Kenya carries with it a burden. Whether you are a Luo, a Kikuyu, a Luhya, a Kalenjin, a Kamba, a Mjikenda or a member of any of the forty two ethinc groups that form the Kenyan nation, there is usually a distinct stereotyping of any of the ethnic groups, a situation that can create what I call “a burden”. It is a burden because the stereotyping may not apply for many Kenyans although, in many cases, the victims have to live with them. Under this circumstance, what is the burden of being a Luo? The following points could be true or false depending on how you look at them. This is not a blue- print but a rough guide of what it takes to be a Luo in Kenya. In politics, you are always accused of supporting or being loyal to the political family of the late Jaramogi Oginga Odinga whose son, Raila Odinga, is currently the centre of gravity in Kenyan politics. In football, you are likely to be accused of supporting Gor Mahia Football Clu ...
Mbugua’s casket was carried by, among others, Raila Jnr and Jaba Kenyatta, the grandsons of the founding fathers of the nation, Mzee Jomo Kenyatta and Jaramogi Oginga Odinga.-found this interesting given how Kenyans followers of the two great Kenyans have bitterness towards each other
COULD IT BE AN "EXPLANATORY". WHY LUOS WONT CLINCH BEFORE KIKUYUS. The kikuyu believe that they have anatural right to power,and wealth perhaps. The distate for each other between the luo and kikuyu,which began with Mzee Kenyatta and the elder Odinga,meant that kikuyus thought it was their responsibility to keep the luos out of power. THE SOURCE. In the 1960's and 1970's the kikuyus succeeded in isolating the luo community from the kenyans. The president mzee Jomo Kenyatta and his henchmen of kiambu mafia did this by isolating the late Jaramogi Oginga Odinga who was the undisputed leader of luo community. Kenyatta succeeded but he created an atmosphere of suspicion that still exists between the luo's and the kikuyu's till today.
Are you aware whatever you do confuse or convice people that you are a aposte of christ? You may be the shepherd but your handling of flocks is wanting! It is a day we sit down and remember who our true shepherds made us to concode the victory of being a republic. Mzee Jomo Kenyatta, Mzee Jaramogi Oginga Odinga, Achieng Oneko, Bildad Jagia; you know them all. May their soul be in peace

My Prayer to my Beloved Mother land.. The land of my great grandfathers. The land of great runners like Kipchoge Keino. Fallen heroes like Dedan Kimathi, Tom Mboya, Robert Ouko,Mzee Jaramogi Oginga Odinga, Mzee Jomo Kenyatta.

How I wish Jaramogi Oginga Odinga and Kamau Wa Ngengi AKA Mzee Jomo Kenyatta were alive to see how their sons are battling, maybe they would have restored sanity in them.
DAILY NATION shared the following link and had this to say about it: How I wish that Prime Minister Raila Odinga was deputy Prime Minister Uhuru Kenyatta’s political valentine. Then we would be able to look at the two men without the blinkers of the conflict between Mzee Jomo Kenyatta and Jaramogi Oginga Odinga obstructing the view.
In the early 1980's Jaramogi Oginga Odinga seemed on the road to political rehabilitation until he called the founding father Mzee Jomo Kenyatta a land grabber. Cord's presidential candidate Raila Odinga has kicked a maelstorm with campains depicting his main rival in the Jubilee coalition as a land grabber. Indeed its Raila-Uhuru renewed 1960's rivalry
There is saying that goes: “Every revolution, like the Roman deity Saturn tends to devour its own sons”. But I would like to stretch this a little further and say that in the end the beneficiaries of revolutions often tend to be the charlatans, imposters and phonies who jump into the revolution vehicle the moment all danger has been eliminated along the way and the destination appears on the horizon.For instance, hayati Mzee Jomo Kenyatta was put to power by the likes of James Gichuru,Tom Mboya n above all Jaramogi Oginga Odinga who negotiated the power as Kenyatta was in detention. However, the joy was short lived.New faces in the name of Mt Kenya Mafia emerged n shielded the fruits of the hard fought power from the likes of Jaramogi Oginga n Tom Mboya among others.This mafia consisted of Dr.W. Mungai, E Mwendwa,J. Kiano , M. Koinange,J. Murumbi n Charles Njonjo.Jaramogi was stripped of the VP post n thrown to the opposition after just 3.Tom Mboya was assassinated 6 years later while James Gichuru l ...
