ODM MPs Fight Over Parliamentary Positions

Embakasi East MP Babu Owino has lit a storm within the ODM Party accusing the party leaders of refusing to appreciate and reward young leaders.

Babu on his social media pages accused the party of denying him the PAC Chair role he had been promised and having it reward the party’s chairman John Mbadi.

“ODM Party, so many youth and myself sacrificed a lot and used our resources in the party over the years, our pay is betrayal and blackmail . It is OK. Tomorrow is another day,” said Babu.

“@TheODMparty With Due respect why should Hon John Mbadi come down from the position of Majority leader to PAC chair which was reserved for me. This will not happen!!!Over my dead body…Young people must get their space.. it’s now or never . He has been rewarded through Nomination,” he continued.

Babu’s sentiments were however not received well by a section of ODM Leaders led by Homabay Town MP Peter Kaluma.

According to Kaluma Babu had already been rewarded with two parliamentary terms by the party for only shouting tialala, tibim.

“Baba has enabled you to serve 2 terms as an MP just for shouting “tialala, tibim.” What more does Baba owe you kid bro!” said Kaluma.

ODM Party has however downplayed the wrangles saying, “We are UNITED, strong and FOCUSED. Good morning.”
