Amani National Congress (ANC) Secretary General Barrack Muluka says Raila Odinga orchestrated the removal of Bungoma Senator, Moses Wetangula as senate minority leader.

Speaking on Jeff Koinange Live (JKL), Muluka revealed that a number of ODM politicians showed Wetangula some of the short messages going round planning for his downfall.

“Wetangula has shown me some short text messages that had been sent to him by people within ODM and which started being sent before he was removed from that office.

And these people were saying clearly that Baba (Raila) had told them that they should remove him,” he said.

The political analyst further revealed that opposition senators were being asked to sign a memorandum to oust the Ford Kenya party leader.

After being ousted, Wetangula has insisted that the former Prime Minister is a ‘betrayer,’ an opinion Muluka said is valid.

“If we are together with you on a mission, we have agreed on certain things and behind my back, you go and start doing things that are contrary to that which we have agreed I think you need to cut me some slack if I start looking at you with different eyes,” he said.

Muluka also brought to light instances where the ODM party leader acted on behalf of NASA without consulting his co-principals.

It has also been said that Odinga did not let in Kalonzo Musyoka, Musalia Mudavadi and Wetangula on his plan to settle his political differences with President Uhuru Kenyatta.

Odinga, word has it that should the constitution be amended will become the Chief Minister, a position that will help end Kenya’s long history of ethnic division.

According to a leaked draft Bill, the Chief Minister shall have two deputies appointed from among the cabinet secretaries.

“The Chief Minister may assign any of the coordination responsibilities of his office to any of the Deputy Chief Ministers,” the document reads.

The Bill also states that the Chief Minister or any of his or her deputies shall not be from the President or Deputy President’s ethnic group.
