ODM mess awaits enthusiastic Raila

04 March 2015, 17:30 William Korir

Nairobi - Orange Democratic Movement ODM leader Raila Odinga returns to the country to a full plate of affairs including a plot to discipline errant leaders in the orange party.

Just before he left the country, Raila had called on chairman John Mbadi to discipline leaders that had gone against party protocol to support candidates competing against ODM's own Moses Kajwang in February's Homa Bay Senatorial by elections.

The leaders named were Nairobi Governor Evans Kidero, Mbita MP Millie Odhiambo, Rangwe MP George Oner, James Rege the Karachuonyo MP and their Ndhiwa counterpart Agostinho Neto, who all went against the party choice in the recent Homa Bay by elections. 

They instead showed their support for Maendeleo Party's Philip Okundi.

Others named in the list are Hon. Christine Masiyoi Lemein – Nominated MCA, Narok County Assembly and Hon. Josephine Nashipae Karia – Nominated MCA, Narok County Assembly.

The latter two have been accused of working with the Jubilee coalition.

Raila will be expected to oversee the process in which the MPs and MCA's have been given 14 days to respond to. It is likely that some of the leaders might face disciplinary action such as fines and in some cases expulsion.

The process as expected will be complicated as most of the leaders are all long time supporters of ODM and have strong support.

It is also likely that Raila will not do much outside warnings and fines, as he might fear the fallout that will come from expelling the leaders.

" He will not expel them. The party is unlikely to do so because there is too much at stake for the party and it might be viewed as an authoritarian move, Isaac Olusa," a lecturer in political sciences from the region told News24.

" The likely-hood is that they will be warned and fined, a PR move to just show that Raila is still in-charge at the party, he added.

Mbadi said last week that the leaders had been warned and must now face the consequences of their actions.

" It is unfortunate but the were told and warned," he said.

The notices of disciplinary action were dispatched from Orange House, the Party Headquarters Tuesday by the Chairman of the Disciplinary Committee Mr. Fred Athuok.

Each one of them is expected to respond to the notice issued in writing and addressed to the Chairman of the Disciplinary Committee and deliver it to Orange House within the 14 days before summons are issued, the party added.
