Raila Odinga's coastal allies split over the removal of Amason Kingi from his position as a County Party chairman over allegations of disloyal to the party.
This has led to formation of two political factions, one supporting his ouster while the other strongly opposing his removal.
Kingi was removed as ODM county party chairman early this month after he was seen being involved in the formation of a unifying coastal party called Pamoja Alliance party which is yet to be launched.
Coastal region has been a die heart of Raila Odinga for a long period now, because of the division experienced in the region now Dp Ruto is likely to be the biggest beneficiary as some Members of Parliament from the has been seen forming alliances to his UDA party.
The coastal region has over 1.5 million votes and if Raila will not take a step in unifying the coastal region, the votes are likely to split to Ruto's bucket in the coming elections.
Share your opinion on if the division will have a political impact in the 2022 general elections.
