Ida Odinga gives biscuits to teenager who gifted Raila model of State House

by Amos Khaemba

Mama Ida Odinga, gifts Wellington Otieno, the teenager who gifted the Azimio la Umoja-One Kenya coalition party Raila Odinga a State House model packets of biscuits.

On Friday, May 27, Raila Odinga’s wife posted photos of her meeting Wellington in the company of his family members.

In one of the photos she shared, Wellington and his mother together with two other people are seen holding a box of Britania biscuits each.

Even though some Kenyans commented on Mama Ida for managing to meet the teenager, some criticized her for gifting him with the biscuits.

“Talented boy awarded biscuits and things settled. Kenya my country” Maurice Maurice said on Facebook.

“Ida Odinga has rewarded the boy who gave Raila Odinga a statehouse structure at Narok with four boxes of biscuits. Be blessed Mama Ida” Tarkwen Tarkwen a random Facebook said.

On her Twitter handle, the 2022 presidential front-runner’s wife promised to ensure that Wellington Otieno remains in school together with other talented children.

“Today I am inspired by a form 3 student at Masikonde Day School in Narok who designed & built a miniature State House Kenya dummy.

“Art strengthens critical thinking, through Linda Kesho, I commit to ensuring that Wellington and other talented children like him stay in school,” Mama Ida said on Twitter.

The meeting came after the teenager expressed disappointment after the gift was returned to him even after spending time and resources to make it.

“I still want to present this gift to him in person so that he keeps it until he ascends to the real State House. I would also love to visit the real State House and even meet the current occupant, President Uhuru Kenyatta,” Otieno had said.

At some point, Otieno’s mother had also expressed disappointment over the treatment of her son after gifting Raila during a rally on May 22.

She alleged that a youth group was recognized for the state House dummy yet her son built it himself.

“I was saddened when I saw it being reported that a group of youth from Narok gifted Raila the ‘State House’ yet it was my son who made it single-handedly,” she told The Nation.
