As divisions continue to rock ODM over the Building Bridges Initiative Bill, the party leader Raila Odinga appears keen to bring some order into the giant opposition outfit.

Amid the sharp divisions pitting the Raila and Siaya Senator James Orengo camps, the former Prime Minister on Saturday met his two key lieutenants, Suna East MP Junet Mohammed and his Ugunja counterpart James Opiyo Wandayi.

While confirming the meeting, Wandayi who is also the ODM director of political affairs, took to his Facebook account revealing they had met with "Baba".

The meeting comes at a time there have been sharp divisions in the orange party camp.

The differences played out openly last week on the floor of the two Houses of Parliament; Senate and National Assembly.

The Orengo camp poked holes in the BBI Bill, something that has irked those in the Raila camp.

The Raila, Junet and Wandayi meeting could be part of Raila's game plan to bring order back to the party amid the sharp divisions that is now threatening ODM unity heading to the next general election.
