Siaya Governor James Orenga appeared on KTN’s PointBlank and spilled the beans on ODM’s future politics.

ODM Party Chairman John Mbadi, however, has denied reports indicating that there is an agreement between President Uhuru Kenyatta and Opposition leader Raila Odinga to form a political alliance for the 2022 General Election.

Mbadi, who is also the National Assembly Minority Leader, was speaking after the local dailies on Thursday quoted Siaya Senator James Orengo, a close confidant of Mr. Odinga, suggesting that Kenyatta and the opposition chief would team up in the next elections.

“ODM is going for political power, and when we are holding these meetings our eyes are set on 2022. The contestation for power is going to come from a formation with ODM in it and formation of Jubilee where Uhuru Kenyatta is playing a role,” Orengo said in KTN‘s PointBlank with Tony Gachoka.

However, addressing the press at Parliament buildings Mbadi dismissed Orengo’s sentiments stating that ODM had not entered into any political agreement yet.

“It is not in doubt that as a party we will participate in the 2022 elections. As to who will be our competitors we still don’t know. As to who we will work with in terms of alliances we still don’t know,” Mbadi said.

Raila Odinga being the chief of ODM is yet to confirm the allegations on whether they are taking the handshake to 2022 or not.
