Friday August 30, 2019-Former Prime Minister, Raila Odinga, has sacked Director for Political Affairs and Strategy, Wafula Buke.

For months now, Mr Buke, a former student leader, has been fighting for transformation and credibility from within the ODM party, a move that has seen him differ with many leaders.

In a statement on Facebook, Buke confirmed receiving a letter from Orange House on Thursday, adding that his struggle for a better ODM will continue.

"Friends and enemies, I was sacked yesterday as Director for Political Affairs and Strategy of ODM. Mr. Edwin Sifuna, Oduor Ongwen and Ms Pareno, since you can't pick my calls, I hereby confirm receiving your letter. 

"I ruffled snakes and have received my feedback. I disagree with you so I will see what to do about that. I just lost income but the struggle for a better ODM is for us all. The funeral for losing a job continues. No burial arrangements," wrote Mr. Buke.

Recently, Buke opposed inclusion of Oduor Ong'wen and Judith Pareno in the three-member committee that was to make recommendations on a taskforce report.

He accused the two of being behind bungling of ODM nominations, arguing that they were unfit to sit in the special committee constituted by Odinga.

His sacking is likely to escalate internal wrangles within the Orange Democratic Movement party, at the time it's organising for Kibra by-election nominations.
