Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) leader Raila Odinga’s wife Ida Odinga has opened up on her strained relationship with the Deputy President William Ruto’s wife Racheal Ruto.

In an interview with Daily Nation on Wednesday, Ida noted that the current political landscape in the country could be the reason for her limited interaction with Racheal Ruto.

“Even with Rachel we would be easy, but I know it won’t be easy for her. The spouse may not allow her to engage me for obvious political reasons. He may not like it,” Ida stated.

She, however, said that her relationship with President Uhuru Kenyatta’s wife Margaret Kenyatta has been easy and cordial.

“With Margaret, we are easy but for Rachel, I know with the current political situation, she may not be comfortable but what Kenyans should know is that politics is not enmity,” Ida noted.

Raila Odinga and William Ruto are perceived as the main opponents in the coming 2022 General Election.
