If Jaramogi Oginga Odinga were to wake up now, and find that the Community he led from 1954 to 1994 is vigorously defending an academic con and academic dwarf with D- as his highest achievement- Jaramogi would wail back to his grave.
Jaramogi valued Academic and Intellectual excellence above everything . He struggled hard and ensured that all his children got the best education. Unfortunately one of his sons became an academic flop.. . but he still managed to take him to a high-tech welding college
Jaramogi was always surrounded by top brains, global names of repute and accomplished academics..
Even in his old age- Jaramogi refused to endorse Raila to take over from him. He preferred James Orengo and Kijana Wamalwa. You could not get any D- material anywhere near Jaramogi.
It is beyond shocking to see how the Community Jaramogi led for 40 years has been transformed from defenders of academic integrity to defenders of D- academic cons. The Community was revered for its high standards in academic excellence due to Jaramogis ways is now reduced to one of hecklers and petty defenders of academic minions.
