Senator James Orengo who is the senate minority leader will not be removed from the position he holds in the Senate. The Odm Party issued a statement that there were no plans to remove Mr Orengo even after a widespread speculations.
I therefore strongly believe that Odm Party can remove James Orengo but the timing right now is wrong. They can not remove him now because of several reasons too. I don't think if there is a suitable person to replace James Orengo in Odm party. Secondly, James Orengo is more grounded politically and his removal would have a huge impact on Odm as a Party.
Thirdly, James Orengo shares a long history with Raila Odinga. It will be very hard for Raila Odinga to remove him. The fourth reason is that the removal of Otiende Amolo was meant to send a message to James Orengo and other MPs about the consequences of rebellion.
Lastly, I strongly believe that the timing is not right to kick James Orengo out of the Senate minority leader position. The Luos are currently angry about the distribution of constituencies. I don't know what you think but that's my take. Remember to comment and click the follow button.
