Crisis in ODM as Party Officials From Raila's Stronghold Warn of Defeat If He Fails to Intervene

A section of ODM leaders who are Members of Busia County Assembly have cried foul to the party leader Raila Odinga to intervene on the party issues citing interference by the party's Secretary General Edwin Sifuna.

The leaders while addressing the media on Thursday in Busia stated that Sifuna has been meddling with the party primaries at the grassroot level, and has even endorsed his referred leaders in the party elections.

They called upon him to focus on his duties at the party headquarters warning that if his actions persist, the party's popularity across the county would diminish and other rival parties will take the stage, which will in turn affect Raila's votes in the coming general elections.

Led by MCA John Oganga of Marachi West Ward, the leaders said that there was favoritism and that some leaders were slowly turning the party as their own property.

"This party is all ours, let the Party's Election Board handle the elections, we do not want to see the SG stating the person he is endorsing as that will simply cause faults within our party. We urge Raila our party leader to intervene and limit our son Sifuna," said Oganga.
