Nairobi - CORD leader Raila Odinga can never be President, an ODM MP says.
Sirisia MP John Waluke says that the reasons why Raila cannot be President are self imposed.
He accuses the ODM leader of not changing tact and supporting the same allies that have been by his side as he lost election after election.
Waluke says that he is a part of the new third force movement because he and other leaders are tired of the same old faces in leadership positions in ODM.
"Raila will never be President because he makes the same mistakes every time. We have the same faces that have cost him elections in the past milling around. ODM needs change," he said.
He accused ODM of turning into a Luo party thanks to its leadership framework.
"There has been a regression of ODM into a Luo party and not a national outfit and that is what will lead to its downfall," he added.
Waluke and Budalangi MP Ababu Namwamba have openly rebelled from ODM and say that they will attempt to take on the 2017 elections under the banner of their new party.
