Raila And ODM In Jitters With Ruto Alleged To Be Planning This Massive Coup

The Orange Democratic Movement and their party leader could be forced back to the drawing board as they could be losing one of their top aides in outgoing Kakamega governor Wycliffe Oparanya in the coming days.

Oparanya and the deputy president William Ruto held behind the scenes meeting recently which has fuelled talks that the ex council of governors chairman could be ditching the Raila led troops.

This could be a massive loss to former prime minister Raila Odinga who is set to contest for the presidency come 2022 and was heavily banking on the influence of Oparanya to get the votes from the Mulembe nation.

Should the tide sway towards Ruto's favor,then he could be a step closer to state house as Oparanya will certainly assure him of votes from his current county.

The deputy president dropped a bombshell recently when he claimed that he had held meetings with the Kakamega governor which has prompted talks of the ODMs deputy party leader defecting to Tanga Tanga.

"The meeting I had with my friend Wycliffe Oparanya is an engagement we have had before. There are many leaders, not just Oparanya. Two weeks ago I met 17 other governors to discuss the future politics with them."Ruto revealed.

Raila is also faced with another headache from the costal region where a section of politicians are championing for the formation of a regional based party which could weaken his army ahead of the polls.
