Wednesday June 18, 2020 – Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party leader, Raila Odinga, is said to be deeply concerned with Jubilee Party’s move to enter into a Coalition agreement with Wiper Democratic Movement and Chama Cha Mashinani (CCM).
On Wednesday, Wiper and CCM made their agreement with Jubilee official in a move that is expected to have several political ramifications.
First, Raila is concerned about where the new Coalition leaves his handshake agreement with President Uhuru Kenyatta.
According to former State House blogger, Dennis Itumbi, Raila is said to have held a meeting with senior party officials at a hotel in Nairobi on Wednesday where they resolved not to pursue their demands for an executive Prime Minister in the BBI report.
During the meeting, Raila is said to have instructed Busia Senator, Amos Wako, to stop taking instructions from Baringo Senator Gideon Moi.
Wako is a co-chair of the BBI taskforce.
