Is it the beginning of the end for Raila?

28 July 2016, 08:03 Solomon Opala

Nairobi - The ‘Luo Nation Alternative Voice’ group from Luo Nyanza, under the leadership of  John Odenyo is now asking the Orange Democratic Movement and CORD leader, Raila Odinga to retire from active politics and instead take on the noble role of a statesman and consultant for various issues of national concern.

The group in a statement issued on Wednesday stated that the Luo community has continued to languish in poverty because of bad politics, and urged the community to avoid being used as voting machines.

Others who share their views include former Kisumu Mayor Ondu who advised the community to avoid those leaders that are herding them to political oblivion, hinting on Raila Odinga’s dwindling fortunes as he continues to face rebellion within his own ODM party and in the Coalition for Reforms and Democracy (CORD).

Of note is the high profile resignation of Budalangi MP Ababu Namwamba and his Funyula counterpart Paul Otuoma who vacated their seats as secretary general and vice chairman respectively.

Cord co-principal, Moses Wetangula has also asked Raila to step down and back someone else.

The wind of change is blowing across the Luo community with many increasing voices calling for a change of guard in the leadership.

Like the the Luo Nation Alternative Voice group, they believe Raila’s politics have impoverished the Luo community. 

Raila’s  recent Western Kenya tour to popularize his party has faced resistance from supporters of other factions and Wetangula was conspicuously missing from the entourage.
