Opinion: Could James Orengo and Otiende Amolo Be Planning A Mass Exit From ODM Party To UDA Party?

James Orengo who is the Senate minority leader, Rarieda MP Otiende Amolo and Nyamira senator Okong'o Omogeni have signed a parliamentary report that labels sections of the proposed law unconstitutional.

The three are signatories to a majority report that declared the schedule that distributes the proposed 70 extra constituencies as unconstitutional. This finding has rattled Raila Odinga and his handshake partner president Uhuru's camps.

Opiyo Wandayi who is the Odm party director of political affairs and some six other Odm MPs yesterday said the odinga-led party was fully behind the BBI report. The contestation over the contents of the bill, they said, were part of last-minute efforts by the opponents of the process to derail its implementation and deny Kenyans the gains set to be brought about by the document.

But the fact of the matter is that James Orengo and Otiende Amolo have been supporters of Raila Odinga for a long time. They have followed his political footsteps and decisions without doubt. Their recent change of tune on a document that Raila Odinga seems to have invested all his effort is surprising. Could this be their political turning point?

Senator James Orengo is said to have plans of retreating from national politics to county politics. It is believed that he wants to run for the gubernatorial seat back at his home. His decision to amend the BBI bill, a decision different from the party decision sends some questions which are hard to answer.

Could James Orengo be planning to exit from Odm Party? To add salt on the matter, Otiende Amolo has been kicked out of the Justice and Legal Affair committee due to his decision different from the party decision. Could this trigger his exit too? I don't know what you think but I think there is possibility. Leave a comment below if you think James Orengo and Otiende Amolo might exit Odm Party. Remember to click the follow button.
