While responding to the comments made by the renowned lawyer Donald Kipkorir, who is a staunch supporter of Mr Odinga, Winnie asked him to shut up. This was after the lawyer asked Mr Odinga to accept the outcome of the concluded election and embrace the new president, Dr William Ruto.

The lawyer, who is part of Mr Odinga’s legal team, had expressed his displeasure in the way Azimio secretariat handled the campaign that cost them the election.

“Dearest Raila Odinga, tomorrow begins the Presidency of H.E William Ruto. From the depths of my heart, I beseech you to stop crying for us. Don’t look out for Kenya anymore,” the lawyer said.

In her response, Winnie asked the lawyer to “shut up once”.

Her comment got her in trouble, as bloggers criticized her for making such remarks, despite their endless efforts to campaign for Mr Odinga during the campaigns.

One Azimio blogger, Abraham Mutai, claimed that Winnie is among the people who misled Mr Odinga, and that she should be the last person to speak.

“Without fear or contradiction, Winnie Odinga is the reason there is a movement called Hustler Nation. She embodies full regalia of an entitled arrogant rich prick who thinks the rest of us have to bow down to her because; Her father. We shall tell these stories properly,” Mutai said.

Winnie was very vocal during the campaigns for her father as she engaged with the youths and Azimio supporters across the country.
