17 December 2014, 16:11
Nakuru - The Orange Democratic Party (ODM) leader, Raila Odinga has been asked to revamp the party from the grassroots if he intends to win the forthcoming general elections.
Speaking in Nakuru town yesterday, Funyula Member of Parliament, Paul Otuoma said that the party has lost its grip and its leader needs to do something to resurrect it.
Otuoma said that the party has lost a considerable following nationally because people lost hope after Raila failed to capture the Presidency in 2013.
He reminded the party leader that time was moving fast and asked him to prepare in advance, knowing very well that he will be battling it out with the current government.

“In most areas across the country, we have lost grip and many people have lost hope in the party. The party leader must work harder to restore the party’s stature before it’s too late. He must know that he will be in the battle field with those who are in power and they have control of everything,” said Otuoma.
He said that it will be hard for them to win the 2017 general election with a weak party.
“The internal frictions we have been having in the party have made us weaker and this should be worked on before it’s too late,” he said.
