According to various political pundits who spoke to The Saturday Standard, at least five politicians are scheming to eliminate Raila Odinga politically as they target to dislodge him from his political bases ahead of the 2027 and 2032 general elections.
Communist Party of Kenya (CPK) vice chairman Buka Ngesa Omole and other observers aver that president William Ruto, deputy president Rigathi Gachagua and prime cabinet secretary Musalia Mudavadi are the people who are leading the charge to dislodge Raila from his traditional political bases.
This is even as ODM party secretary general Edwin Sifuna stated that the western Kenya region was shortchanged by Azimio in the parliamentary committees and slots at EALA. He says that the leader that Western region will support going forward is one who will listen to their interests, a clear indication that he's disgruntled.
"The Western Kenya region was shortchanged in the house committees, and we have the right to protest. We will demand what is our right and push for our interests as a community. Luhyas are number two in population in Kenya, and we will push for what is good for us locally and abroad," he said.
