Gatundu South Member of Parliament Moses Kuria has taken to his official Facebook page this Saturday to post a video of alleged ODM supporters fighting over the disagreement between ODM leader Raila Odinga and Siaya Senator James Orengo.
Currently there is a sharp divide among ODM members where a section of them is of the opinion that the BBI Bill be amended before it goes to the referendum while a section of the party is against an amendment. The section which is for amendment is led by Senator Orengo and that against referendum is led by John Mbadi. According to Raila’s spokesman Dennis Onyango, Raila is on Mbadi’s side.
And now, Kuria has alleged that the ODM supporters that are against amendments have attacked ODM leaders who are leading a push for amendments- James Orengo, Otiende Amolo, Aduma Owuor and Sam Atandi in Alego Usonga. In the video shared by Moses Kuria, Youths are seen fighting and throwing fists, kicks and chairs to each other, some are heard shouting “Jaribu, tutajuana mbivu na mbichi”, gunshots are heard in what is believed to be police dispersing the youths.
Moses Kuria used the video to request Interior CS Fred Matiang’I to assure Kenyans that 2022 general elections will be free from such violence.
“Dear CS Fred Matiangi, to demonstrate that you can guarantee the country a peaceful election next year, you need to take action on the ODM members who meted out violence against ODM ASILI leaders James Orengo, Otiende Amolo, Aduma Owuor and Sam Atandi in Alego Usonga yesterday”, wrote Moses Kuria.
