Friday March 15, 2019-Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) has finally responded to Siaya Senator James Orengo’s allegation that former Prime Minister Raila Odinga and President Uhuru Kenyatta have entered into a deal over the 2022 poll.
Speaking yesterday, ODM Party Chairman, John Mbadi, dismissed the claims that ODM is working on an alliance with Uhuru.
“I want to set the record straight and make it categorical that ODM has not formed any alliance with any party or individual.”
“Any contrary opinion should, therefore, be treated as personal,” Mbadi told journalists yesterday.
According to Mbadi, Raila Odinga has not entered any agreement or negotiations with anyone or any political entity with regard to the 2022 vote.
“It would be premature for anybody to say that we have entered into a political agreement with anybody. Maybe that is Orengo’s wish, which is not bad, but he should not confuse the people that it is the party position.”
“As a party, we have been discouraging other people from engaging in early campaigns for 2022 and cannot turn back and start doing the same thing,” he remarked.
