NAIROBI – Chungwa house could soon convert The Orange Democratic Movement party (ODM) into an Non Governmental Organisation after allegedly failing to keep the government in check as a party.
Payuka believes ODM resorted to its new plan after the party leader Raila Odinga spent his last ‘bullet’ in the 2017 general election.
Odinga has also steered clear off the up coming 2022 general election, denouncing plans of his likelihood to vie in the election that has attracted the candidature of Deputy president William Ruto, who has in numerous occasions stated his presidential ambitions.
In a coded Facebook message, an ODM insider Munglu Dikembe, hinted that ODM could only perform its role in opposition better if it was turned into an NGO.
Dikembe explained ODM could better champion for police reforms, good governance and human rights only if it joined activists like Boniface Mwangi.
The aid to Minority Whip and Suna East Member of Parliament Junet Mohammed, said ODM will also get a lot of money through donor funding as an NGO.
He added that ODM in its current state after the handshake, had turned some of its die-hards into “cows” and “tenderpreneurs” who were focused on forming the next government “clean or rig ashamedly.”
Let me repeat this, if we want police reforms let’s turn ODM into an NGO fighting for police reforms. If all we want is good governance let’s turn ODM into an NGO fighting for good governance. If all we want is respect for human rights, let’s turn ODM into an NGO fighting for human rights and independent judiciary. Donor money will follow us.– Dikembe Disembe
This could explain why the party’s Secretary General Edwin Sifuna is going after Interior Cabinet Secretary Dr. Fred Matiang’i on social media after the Bonchari constituency by-election in Kisii county.
