How Two Communities Dominate The Civil Service: Countries That Have Already Confirmed Sending of Officers to Haiti & Gachagua Taken to Court for Slur on Justice Maina

Good morning,

It is on a lovely Thursday morning and succession politics inside the ODM party seems to be far from over.

Among those who are flexing muscles to succeed Raila Odinga are former governors Ali Hassan Joho and Wycliffe Oparanya.

However, despite concealing his intentions, pundits believe Raila could be grooming a possible successor in the Orange party. A section of political analysts believe former Kakamega Governor Wycliffe Oparanya could be the ODM leader’s surprise choice for a successor.

Mr Joho, whose absence in the political scene had been conspicuous, recently re-emerged, declaring his bid for the presidency in 2027 on an ODM ticket.

Sources within the party indicated factional fights pitting Mr Joho against Mr Oparanya. National Assembly Minority Whip Junet Mohammed is said to be in Mr Joho’s camp.

The succession struggle is likely to spill over to the party grassroots elections as each camp would be seeking to install their loyalists in key party positions.

Who do you think should succeed Raila?
