The CEO of The BrickHouse Counsel and daughter of Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) leader Winnie Odinga on Thursday April 8 was a guest on Spice FM when a caller called and accused her to be out of reality with the lives of ordinary TBEN.
“We’re asking questions of someone who can’t actually answer. I don’t think she knows what it means to work, we have to do away with the dynasty families.
“It’s because they don’t know the problems we have here and therefore there is no way we can find a solution. It’s ridiculous that we make mistakes over and over again, ”said the caller who has been identified as Charity.

Winnie, who in the past has been very vocal about the political situation in the country, responded by saying that her family had suffered greatly for the good of the country.
“I don’t think she can talk about me when it comes to dynasties. I don’t think we can talk about Jaramogi Odinga in the worst place in this country at Haller Park and Raila Odinga after eight years in detention.
“I don’t know if she knows the life I lived with police surrounding my house and guns over my head. I don’t think she knows the floors I slept in, the floors my mom slept in, my siblings slept for this country and I don’t expect her to know that. I don’t think it’s okay to judge a story when you don’t know the whole story, ”Winnie said.
Winnie added that none of his family members were elected. She noted, however, that she had been lobbying in a personal capacity to achieve political change.
On Wednesday April 7, the CEO of BrickHouse called on Nairobi Parliamentarians (MPs) for not doing the job they were supposed to do.
“The three tasks of a deputy are to represent the people, to supervise the institutions and to legislate on behalf of the people. There is not a single member of the 12th Parliament who took any of these jobs seriously. This town is drowning in filth both metaphorically and literally, ”Winnie wrote on Twitter.
In order to get change, Winnie had previously hired women in Kilimani to sweep the roads, cut grass along the streets and pick up litter, but they were arrested for lack of permits.
The term dynasty has been used in reference to wealthy families who have monopolized political space in Kenya for generations.
