New information about the present state of the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party has come to light, and it is claimed that this has affected the party's leader, Raila Odinga, in his political activities, particularly the ongoing anti-government protest rallies.
The Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party house is experiencing anxiety, according to a report in today's Nation Newspaper, as complaints about ODM party governors' disregard for anti-government protest rallies organized by the Azimio la Umoja One Kenya Alliance coalition party continue to be voiced. who, despite the invitation from their party leader to participate in those rallies, allegedly chose to ignore them.
After several governors continued to miss the Azimio rallies, even when the rallies were held in their own counties, the anxiety is said to be getting worse day after day. The most recent instance involved Dr. Willber Otichillo, the governor of Vihiga County, who skipped the county's weekend rally, prompting ODM Deputy Party Leader and former Kakamega Governor Dr. Wycliffe Oparanya to voice his worry during the same meeting.
Kenyans have reacted to the report in a variety of ways. Some have defended the governors' decision to skip the rallies, arguing that they are instead focused on serving their constituents. Others have dismissed the reports of anxiety, claiming that they are the product of the media.
The court has upheld a lawsuit brought by former National Assembly member for Kibwezi, Hon. Patrick Musimba, against Makueni Governor, Hon. Mutula Kilonzo Jr. The case concerned Mutula Kilonzo Jnrvictory .'s in the Makueni 2022 gubernatorial elections, which had been challenged by former MP Patrick Musimba.
According to the court's decision, petitioner Patrick Musimba did not present enough proof to reverse Mutula Jr.'s win. This lawsuit, which was brought against those who had triumphed in the general elections of 2022, is now being dismissed by the courts.
According to the Kenyan constitution, Mutula Kilonzo Jr. will now hold the position of second governor of Makueni for a term of five years. Now that he is the county's leader, Mutula Kilonzo Jnr will be able to carry on the legacy of his predecessor, previous governor Kivutha Kibwana.
It's unclear at this time whether Patrick will appeal the court's ruling to a higher court. But all we can do is wish him and Mutula Kilonzo Jr. the best.
