Kenya's Most Authoritative Political Newspaper

Citizen Weekly

Sunday, 16 November 2014


A list of names of prominent Luo Nyanza politicians, professionals and members of the clergy is circulating in the region as those who are perceived and described as a political baggage to Cord leader Raila Odinga ahead of the 2017 elections.
As political flare-up and tempers continue to boil in Raila’s political bedrock of Luo Nyanza, we this week authoritatively report that a plot to expel Kisumu Central MP Ken Obura from the party to create room for Fidel Odinga has been hatched. Also to be replaced is long serving Rongo MP and former cabinet minister, Dalmas Otieno.
Sources say Raila had confided in his trusted lieutenants that since he is not sure of his political future come 2017, he must ensure Fidel is in active politics before he retires. It is for this reason that Kisumu Central has been earmarked for Fidel and on the pretext that Obura is a Jubilee mole and a rebel MP who does not conform to the ideals of the party.
During the 2013 elections, Raila attempted to bring Fidel to the political limelight when he contested the Kibra parliamentary seat ODM nominations but was beaten hands down. It now seems Raila has not given up on him hence plot to expel Obura from the party to force a by-election in which Fidel will be given a direct nomination by ODM.
Obura for long has been branded ODM rebel and now those opposed to him say that he was not as popular as he thought. During the last general elections, he garnered 48,195 votes against his closest challenger Abdulqadir Mohammed of Ford-K who garnered 31,437 votes.
Paul Abuor is the man being groomed in Rongo.  He is the younger brother of former PS Hezekiah Oyugi. It is being whispered that Dalmas has lost his once immense popularity after he garnered only 18,943 votes against Abuor’s 11,604. Abuor contested on The Independent Party.
Sources say it was Raila who directly campaigned for Dalmas when signs showed that Abuor was going to throw Dalmas to  oblivion. During the ODM nominations, Abuor had beaten Dalmas hands down but his nomination was revoked on orders allegedly from Raila forcing him to decamp to TIP where he again gave Dalmas a run for his money. He is now the man Raila is fronting to take on Dalmas in 2017. 
Back on the anti-Raila list circulating, the name of Nairobi governor Evans Kidero tops. Sources say those opposed to Kidero are envious of his brand of politics which has now become popular in Nyanza. Already, a number of Luo MPs, MCAs, politicians, professionals and clergy are angling behind Kidero’s  “politics of development”.
Last week, he held a harambee at Homa Bay Boys High School despite pressure from a section of Raila diehards that holding a parallel meeting with Raila’s Oyugis meeting was disrespectful.
Those in attendance were Karachuonyo MP James Rege and Homa Bay MP Peter Kaluma among other MCAs. At Kidero’s meeting, he declared that he was in ODM to stay and even predicted that come 2017, ODM will form the government. 
However, Raila while addressing party delegates in Oyugis read the riot act on MPs branded as rebels and asked them to shape up or ship out. He did not, however, make statements directed at Kidero but his brother Oburu Odinga, Otieno Kajwang took swipes at Kidero.
A number of Luo MPs with poor development record have been fighting Kidero’s development activities including donations at harambees  in Nairobi and in Nyanza. But what came out during the two meetings held by Raila and Kidero is that Luos have a soft spot for Kidero’s development agenda as compared to empty political rhetoric and theatrics. 
The list calls on the individuals not to bother contesting the 2017 elections because the voters have lost trust in them and it will therefore be a waste of time and resources as they have been described as unelectable in 2017.
We have in our possession a copy of list which is believed to have been drawn by a group of people assumed to be close to Raila. What is not known is whether Raila is aware of it or if it has his blessings.
The list is composed of politicians, MPs governors, senators, women reps, county reps and former MPs. Others are church leaders, professionals, ODM officials and the ever notorious ODM power brokers.
