Mbadi tells Babu Owino: Go for PAC chair.

Published on

John Mbadi, chairman of the opposition ODM party, has denied reports that he was given the head of the Public Accounts Committee.

Reacting angrily to Babu Owino’s remark on Thursday that the ODM chairman had been handed the role by the party, he lashed out at the politician.

“Those who say I have been given the post have a fundamental misunderstanding of how the legislative process works. A committee’s chair is chosen by a majority vote of the members of the committee “… he said

Owino said on Thursday that ODM had betrayed the old guard by giving key positions to newcomers.

In addition, he said that the PAC post was his and that he would not allow the nominated MP to take it.

As a result, party leader Raila Odinga has called for an emergency meeting to be convened on Monday.
