ODM party leader Raila Odinga has held a meeting with two of the three perceived party rebels Siaya Senator James Orengo and Kakamega governor Wycliffe Oparanya.
Odinga took to his official Twitter thanking the two who were flunked with Kitui governor Charity Ngilu on Monday, May 10, for dropping by him.
“I had a great chat this morning with governor Charity Ngilu and Wycliffe Oparanya together with Senator James Orengo whom I hosted for brunch. Thanks for dropping by,” Raila said.
Details of the meeting were not immediately clear but it comes amidst rumors of fallout in the party.
The trio; Oparanya, Orengo and Rarieda Member of Parliament Otiende Amollo attended a church service at Butere, after which they left without addressing the press.
In their address to congregants during the church service, the trio accused other members of the party of misleading Raila for their own personal gains warning Raila to watch out for traitors within the camp who want to ruin ODM’s chance of forming the next government.
“We are in ODM by faith and Raila Odinga is our unequivocal leader. We won’t allow a few people to deceive him,” said Otiende Amollo.
Reports doing rounds on social media allege that Raila locked horns with Orengo and Otiende Amollo after they tore into the faulty Building Bridges Initiative bill pushing for amendments a move that was against the party’s position.
Oparanya however, had fallen out with his party leader Raila Odinga when he publicly announced that he will be seeking to succeed President Uhuru Kenyatta in the 2022 General Election.
This was despite the fact that the ODM party had announced that their party leader will be on the ballot calling for all other members to drum up for his support.
