The Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party has reportedly kicked out 11 Kisumu MCAs from different committees in the county assembly after they met with the Interior Principal Secretary Raymond Omollo on March 2nd.
The MCAs led by the Kisumu Senator Tom Ojienda paid a courtesy call to Omollo at his office where they deliberated on the contributory roles of MCAs in the security and development of the wards.
This seems to have brushed the ODM party leadership in the assembly the wrong way if the sentiments by MCA Kelvin Oraro is anything to go by.
In a video by the Standard Digital on Tuesday, Oraro maintains that the MCAs are not moved for meeting PS Omollo, adding that they will now play the role of the opposition in the county assembly.
"These are the fruits we get after standing your ground and believing in someone who you think can do a better job in Kisumu County. If removing me from a committee is what I deserve and withdrawal of other benefits as a member, so be it."
"Sometimes you can be in a leadership position not knowing that tomorrow is also a day. We are therefore ready to play the opposition role because you can clearly see that the assembly needs an opposition, and we will walk that tight rope and I am seeing light at the end of the tunnel."
"Not everything is about Raila Odinga, it's about Kisumu politics of 2027 and it is therefore not good to involve the party leader in some funny discussions."
This comes after Raila made a U-turn on taking action action Senator Ojienda and other ODM elected MPs after they met with President William Ruto at State House.
