Opinion: Why Odm Party Can Not Remove Senator James Orengo As Senate Minority Leader

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.
