Interesting Turn as ODM Official is Seen Among Luhya Leaders Threatening to Work With Kenya Kwanza

ODM leader Raila Odinga is at war with his allies from the Western Kenya region after Mt. Kenya leaders allied with the Jubilee Party. On Tuesday, the leaders held a press conference in which they expressed their dissatisfaction with Raila's Azimio due to a purported lack of cooperation in dividing up leadership roles.

Edwin Sifuna, secretary general of the Orange Democratic Movement and senator for Nairobi were one of them. The MPs have declared their willingness to cooperate with Raila's opponents on the Kenya Kwanza side, accusing him of political dishonesty.

In a statement read by Saboti MP Caleb Amisi, they declared, "The community's elected leaders shall, from today, speak in one voice, regardless of party affiliations." They objected to ODM's decision to steal Jubilee's PSC nomination because it meant that John Waluke, an MP from Sirisia, would no longer serve on the PSC.

They also mentioned that the decision not to appoint any Luhya to the EALA has made them reevaluate their position in Azimio. The leaders went on to say, "We are aware that he(Walukhe) had received a letter that nominated him from the Jubilee party."
