Tuesday May 5, 2020 – Former Prime Minister Raila Odinga’s party, ODM, is now threatening to pull out of a Senate Committee after ODM Senator, Ledama Ole Kina, was elected as its chair.
This is after a letter emerged purportedly from ODM threatening to boycott a Senate Committee.
The letter, which surfaced yesterday bearing Siaya Senator James Orengo’s signature, claimed that it will withdraw its membership from the County Public Accounts and Investments Committee shortly after Ole Kina’s win.
“I express and register dissatisfaction with the conduct and outcome of the elections of the leadership of the County Public Accounts and Investments Committee which were purportedly done today.”
“We intend to withdraw our membership from the said committee until an appropriate resolution will be made,” the letter reads in part.
The Senator was unveiled as the new chair of the committee taking the reins from Homa Bay Senator, Moses Kajwang.
