Two prominent ODM leaders are among the delegation accompanying ODM leader Raila Odinga to Lodwar for this year’s Turkana festivals.
Local leaders led by ODM Vice Chairman Jeremiah Lomorukai and Governor Josephat Nanok received the former Prime Minister at Lodwar airstrip.
Governor Nanok who was thrown out of the ODM Vice Chairman position in June for publicly endorsing DP Ruto 2022 is alleged to be warming his way back to Baba as Ruto’s chance pf ascending to presidency dwindles.
Siaya Senator James Orengo is among prominent leaders accompanying Odinga. He is in the inner circle and has already hinted that Odinga will have a fifth stab at presidency.
“Arrived in Lodwar to attend the annual Turkana Tourism and Cultural Festival; Tobong’u Lore. When our cultures gather strength to go on for centuries, it only shows the unity we can have in our diversity as a country. Thank you for the warm welcome,” he said.
Also present is Suna East MP Junet Mohamed. Mr Mohamed has risen to be Mr Odinga’s most trusted ally evident during the March 9th handshake with President Uhuru Kenyatta.
Of all politicians within ODM, it’s only Junet who knew about the handshake. He has previously confessed of being in Odinga’s ‘kitchen cabinet’.
