Lawyer Danstan Omari has criticized the Azimio La Umoja One Kenya Alliance flag bearer Raila Odinga for deciding who will be the speakers of county assemblies in the Luo Nyanza counties.
Raila last week was reported to have meetings with the MCAs in bid to woo them in to supporting his preferred candidates for the positions, a move that elicited mixed reactions across the political space.
According to Omari, some of Raila's deeds makes Kenyans lose trust in his Orange Democratic Movement, ODM, and that might be one of the reasons he has been loosing presidential elections.
"Azimio is a marriage of other parties, but now ODM is behaving as the only party. As Jubilee, we are asking what is our stake, that is the same thing Wiper were told by ODM when they asked about political funds, that there was no money. Such actions have made Kenyans fail to trust ODM."
"The same analogy took place during the election of speakers in Luo Nyanza, when Raila had to go physically to tell the MCAs who to vote for. That is wrong, and we do not want that kind of leadership," said Omari.
The lawyer went on to support Embakasi MP Babu Owino and Narok Senator Ledama Ole Kina's push to have youths in the party awarded, saying that it is time for Raila to give a growing space for those in his party.
