Here is why ODM leaders are not happy with RAILA ODINGA’s new AU job – They are only congratulating him when there are cameras

Tuesday October 23, 2018-A section of Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) MPs have expressed their displeasure following the appointment of NASA leader, Raila Odinga, as African Union top envoy.
On Saturday, Raila, who is also the ODM Party leader, was appointed as AU’s High Representative on Infrastructure Development in Africa.
Following his new role, there are jitters within ODM and some MPs are seeking audience with Raila to respond to their fears.
Those apprehensive of the future say the ODM leader should be cautious about the appointment as it could be a bait by his rivals to remove him from the political contest.
“There is confusion in the party over our leader’s new role.”
“This could be a strategy to shove him off the main political stage.”
“His absence will be catastrophic for the opposition.”
“He must explain to us how he intends to shuttle between the two roles while making sure that his role in the 2022 elections remains clear,” said a senior ODM member who requested anonymity.
The politician said Raila’s busy continental diary could destabilize NASA.
“Raila is the cornerstone of NASA.”
“His absence is a concern because that would throw us into disarray and reorganizing ourselves might be a challenge,” he added.
