Three members of the ODM party who have been accused of sabotaging Raila Odinga held a meeting with COTU secretary General on Monday evening.
Kakamega Governor Wycliffe Oparanya, Siaya Senator James Orengo and Rarieda MP Otiende Amollo visited Francis Atwoli at his Kajiado home to discuss issues of ‘national interest’.
“Today I hosted the Kakamega county Governor @GovWOparanya , Siaya county Senator @orengo_james and Rarieda MP @OAmollo at my Ildamat Home in Kajiado. It is always good catching up with these great men and reflect on important issues of national interest,” wrote Atwoli on his official Twitter account.
The evening meeting occurred just hours after the trio had held discussions with their party leader, Raila Odinga at his Karen residence.
According to Raila, the party members accompanied by Kitui Governor Charity Ngilu visited him to have a chat.
The trio has held meetings with these two leaders after numerous reports that they are coiling a rebellion against the ODM Party.
Orengo and Otiende Amollo were accused of betrayal to Raila after they made public their stand on BBI.
The two were opposed to the bill, citing that the introduction of 70 constituencies through BBI is unconstitutional.
Later on, Oparanya joined them in asking the ODM party to consider their opinions and rethink its decision on passing the amendment bill that is flawed.
From today’s occurrences, it seems that the trio is working on burying the hatchet with their party leader.
However, this might be too late for Otiende Amollo who was ousted from his vice-chair position at the Justice and Legal Affairs Committee (JLAC).
Orengo on the other hand had been earmarked for removal from the Senate minority position but was later on salvaged by Raila.
