Monday June 1,2020 – Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party leader, Raila Odinga, has reacted angrily to reports linking him to the Sunday ouster in Ford Kenya where the party’s National Governing Council removed Bungoma Senator , Moses Wetangula, as the party leader.
In the changes, Wetangula was replaced by Kanduyi MP, Wafula Wamunyinyi.
Following the changes, Amani National Congress (ANC) party leader, Musalia Mudavadi, accused Raila Odinga of being behind the Ford Kenya coup with the aim of destabilising the party.
But Raila fired back accusing Mudavadi of being a professional mourner and a fence sitter after the happenings in Ford-Kenya on Sunday, May 31st.
“However, our attention has been caught by his reference to ‘the leader of a NASA party’ as being behind the changes that have been carried out in a party that should neither concern us nor him.”
“It is a poorly disguised attempt to once again lay blame on ODM and its leader for Mudavadi and his friend’s shortcomings,” said Raila in a statement released by party Secretary-General, Edwin Sifuna.
Sifuna also accused Mudavadi of having held meetings with politicians “of different shades in the past few weeks” yet he chooses now to cast aspersions on their leader, Raila Odinga.
“Mudavadi in 2002 chose KANU over NARC and UDF over ODM in 2013, with disastrous results, but still within his rights.”
“He has no right to lecture anyone on political choices, given the catalogue of failures from his own choices since 2002, and from which he has been politically saved countless times by the ‘leader of a NASA party’,” he said.
