Raila’s daughter Winnie Odinga has started History and English classes online.
Opposition leader Raila Odinga’s daughter Winnie Odinga has promised to start offering online classes to help thousands of students who have been forced to stay home due to coronavirus pandemic.
Winnie’s decision came barely days after Embakasi East MP Babu Owino began online revision classes to assist the 2020 Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) prepare for the national test.
She wrote on her Twitter handle:
Through her Twitter handle, the former premier’s daughter said she would be offering English and History classes though she did not specify when she would commence teaching.
She tweeted on Friday:
With that being said, I start online teaching soon. English and History were my subjects. But be fairly warned, my history classes may differ drastically from the curriculum. You may fail the exam but you will win in knowledge of the truth May 8.
Winnie was reacting to a directive issued by Education Principal Secretary Belio Kipsang barring untrained teachers from teaching students through online platforms.
Winnie holds a double major degree in International Business and Corporate Communications from Drexel University in Philadelphia, in the US.
She went to Rusinga School for her primary education and Brookhouse for high school.
Winnie is a CEO at The BrickHouse Counsel and often describes herself as the former premier’s personal bodyguard.
She once said in an interview with a local publication:
I work for my dad. I have worked for him for as long as I can remember. I’m his bodyguard, his briefcase carrier, travel companion or even driver if need be.
