What started as an innocent and unplanned political meeting between ODM Deputy Leader Wycliffe Oparanya and Deputy President William Ruto is brewing a huge political storm. ANC Party, led by Musalia Mudavadi now claims ODM is arm-twisting President Uhuru Kenyatta over 2022.
The party’s chair Kelvin Lunani says the recent engagements between Raila Odinga allies, and William Ruto were aimed at forcing President Uhuru into working with Raila Odinga in 2022. The Mudavadi party has gone ahead to claim ODM does not believe in the BBI process and wants to sabotage it. The BBI is spearheaded by President Uhuru Kenyatta and Raila Odinga.
”Also self-evident is the party’s duplicitous support for the handshake. It’s apparent that ODM never believed in the BBI byproduct unless it serves their selfishness,” the ANC chair said in a statement.
In the past week, ODM and its leadership have been involved in intensive political lobbying with its allies across the political divide.
The importune has seen leaders troop in and out of Mr. Odinga’s Karen home, something which has thrown Kenya’s political terrain into a spin, with Kenyans asking whether the ODM leader is crafting a new political alliance.
