Azimio la Umoja one Kenya Coalition leader Raila Odinga on 27th December at night revealed his stand on Kenya Kwanza's proposed amendments to the Constitution, a move which will see him given an office as the official opposition leader.
Speaking to Trevor Ombija via Citizen TV Kenya, the former Prime Minister revealed that his Azimio la Umoja camp won't fall for President William Ruto's trap recounting that he had an office as Prime Minister back then.
Odinga as well refuted claims that his political brigade can be bribed so as to back Kenya Kwanza's government in amending the constitution.
Besides Odinga, a section of ODM MPs are as well against Ruto's proposed move with majority believing that Odinga might be being dragged into a trap that will weaken opposition.
" We are not going to be enticed because I'm going to be given an office in parliament. I have had an office as a prime minister. it is nothing so exciting to me and we cannot be bribed to circumvent the constitutional provisions just to satisfy certain interests", he said.
Odinga further revealed their plan of initiating a constitutional review which will be participatory among kenyans all over the country.
Meanwhile, let's wait and see what happens next.
