When it comes to politics in the Nyanza regions without the involvement of Millie Odhiambo, then without any doubt it will be incomplete.
The vocal Mbita lawmaker has been one of the long-term confidants of opposition Chief Raila Odinga.
Prior to the 2017 polls and after the results, she was on the forefront attacking President Uhuru on the ground claiming that he doesn’t qualify to be the Head of State.
The most unforgettable attack by the MP to Uhuru was when she termed him 'Uhuru Kinyasa' instead of Uhuru Kenyatta.
But then, there has been a notable political tilt in the Millie Odhiambo's politics as she neither shouts at president Uhuru nor the Jubilee government.
The main reason behind this is that her boss, Raila Odinga, joined hands with the President.
Millie is now openly working with the government and vowed to assist the government to achieve its big four agenda. Moreover, she doesn’t want to go against her boss and her party’s position.
The MP does not want to face the ODM disciplinary committee like her Malindi counterpart Aisha Jumwa for alleged violation of the party’s political position.
Since most leaders in the Nyanza region have positively responded to the post-handshake effects, Millie Odhiambo has to dance to the same political tune by default.
