Raila Hosts Orengo, Otiende And Oparanya In Karen Amidst ODM Divisions

Published

on

ODM leader Raila Odinga met Senator James Orengo, Rarienda MP Otiende Amollo and Governor Wycliffe Oparanya Monday in a move to end open defiance in his party ahead of the crucial vote in the Senate for the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI).

Lawyer Orengo is Odinga’s closest ally who has stuck with him for years, but is lately seen to revolt after opposing the party’s position on the proposed 70 new constituencies.

On the other hand, Oparanya, seen as Odinga kingpin in Western Kenya has set his eyes on the presidency and left tongues wagging when he met Deputy President William Ruto.

Odinga tweeted Monday that he had a brunch with Orengo, Oparanya and Kitui Governor charity Ngilu but no further details of the talks were provided.
