Raila to convince 'rebel' leaders to take party posts

25 November 2014, 19:00 William Korir

Nairobi - ODM leader Raila Odinga will try convince leaders that have turned down leadership posts at the party to change their stand on the matter.

Odinga is apparently dismayed by the fact that key faces such as Kakamega Governor Wycliffe Oparanya and Paul Otuoma have turned down posts within the party's leadership structure.

According to sources close the ODM leader, he will seek critical talks with the two, plus Busia Women representative Florence Mutua to rescind their decisions.

" He is obviously distraught. He has tried to accomodate everyone. He will seek talks to try solve the issue," the source that did not want to be named said.

The three said that they felt the major issues at the party had not and would not be solved by handing out posts to please everyone.

" We do hereby resolve that we will not take up positions to which we have been proposed as it is our conviction that the manner in which the process was conducted does not reflect the will and the wishes of members of the ODM family and it would, therefore, be egocentric for us to take these positions for purposes of personal aggrandizement, they said in a statement Monday.

It is not clear whether others have already considered not taking up the positions offered to them.

Oparanya was designated as deputy party leader, with Otuoma deputy party chairman and Mutua the deputy organizing secretary.
