Raila Odinga’s plan to reunite his party amid fallouts

Published on

Raila Odinga, the head of the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM), has scheduled a strategy gathering to resolve the brewing discontent among his senior officers,

emanating from the House leadership wrangles.

The meeting had been scheduled for this Friday, September 23, but due to the inauguration of new senators and members of parliament in Nairobi, it was postponed till next week. This was confirmed by ODM executive director Oduor Ong’wen.

“I’m an implementer. When the leadership says it has to be pushed back, mine is to implement,” Ong’wen told Nation.Africa.

John Mbadi, chairman of the ODM party, had previously expressed his disappointment for being denied the role of National Assembly Majority Leader.
He said that the decision was unjust because he had already withdraw his gubernatorial run for Homa Bay County for the designated seat, only for Azimio to back Ugunja MP Opiyo Wandayi instead.

“I was asked to shelve my gubernatorial ambition which I did. It will be unfair to deny the opportunity on the basis that I am nominated. I have a track record as a Minority Leader,” Mbadi stated.
