Former Speaker of the National Assembly Kenneth Marende has asked members of the Luhya community to quit the Orange Democratic Party.
“It’s clear that Luhyas have no room in Cord and their support for Mr Raila Odinga in 2017 will be another big mistake,” said Mr Marende at a funeral in Mumias yesterday.
The newly appointedwas furious at how Raila runs ODM as a personal fiefdom thus unwelcoming divergent opinions from other stakeholders terming them as moles.
Speaking on phone later from his Emuhaya home, Marende told Politica that Raila is a greedy leader who wants everything for himself and nobody else.
“We, the Luhyia community will remain in ODM under one condition, that Raila promises us the flag bearership in 2017, nothing less, nothing more” Said Marende.
