MP: Raila to remain ODM’s party leader

26 November 2013, 20:57 Joseph Njung’eh

Nyeri - Homa Bay County MP,Gladys Nyasuna Wanga,has lashed out to her fellow ODM members pushing for change in the party leadership.

Wanga said former Prime Minister Raila Odinga will remain the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) leader and the position should be exceptional from competition during the party’s elections slated for February 2014.

She however maintained that a generational change is needed in ODM’s leadership and youthful leaders should take over as in Jubilee alliance.

“I am supporting decision to push and hand over ODM leadership to the youth but those who have worked for the party ought to be honored and the exercise should not be rough,” Wanga said.

“Though pushing for a new leadership,  Raila will have to maintain his seat as the party leader for he is the symbol of unity in ODM. In any case a party leader is not ousted without major reasons since the move might politically push us backwards,” she added.

Wanga noted that the decision to change party’s leadership is a reaction to some of the weaknesses identified during the last election.

She made the remarks during a radio interview on Monday night. 

With regards to the supremacy battles between Parliament and Senate, the MP said the wrangles are not reasonable. She said according to the constitution each house has its own and specified duties which does not clash.

Wanga stated that it is only matters touching Counties that should pass through the Senate but currently they are minimal.

She accused senators of violating constitution in demanding to discuss every bill from parliament, notwithstanding that majority of them were involved in drafting the new constitution.
