It is on a beautiful Thursday morning and the controversies surrounding Raila Odinga’s ODM leadership seems to be far from over.
While Ruto’s Kenya Kwanza Alliance seems to have mutually settled on individuals going to be nominated for various house leadership positions, Raila’s ODM is still in turmoil with the nominees facing rebellion from a section of dissatisfied ODM leaders.
It is a move that has forced ODM leader Raila Odinga to call for a Parliamentary Group meeting next week to quell disquiet in the party over House leadership before Parliament begins its sittings.
The wrangles are not just about the leadership positions but also the chief whip post, which went to Suna East MP Junet Mohamed.
Most MPs in the Orange party have accused Mr Mohamed of not only undermining them but also contributing to Mr Odinga’s loss in the presidential election.
Do you think the open defiance by some MPs and MCAs towards Raila’s directions is a clear indication that Raila could be loosing his influence in the Luo Nyanza region?
