ODM Party Leader Raila Odinga has today resolved the power squabbles which had engulfed the ‘pulse’ of the ODM Party – Homa Bay County.
The power struggle pitted Homa Bay Women Rep Gladys Wanga against Homa Bay Town MP Peter Kaluma. So strained was the relationship between the two legislators that it sucked in the county governor, Cyprian Awiti, who sided with the Homa Bay Town MP in a self-serving ploy to remain relevant ahead of the 2017 elections.
Hon. Wanga will remain the County Chairperson of the Orange Party, while Kaluma will now have to be contented with Organizing Secretary, though it is said Raila must have promised him something else.
The two protagonists shook hands immediately after the Party Leader’s intervention, ending a squabble that was sapping the needful energy of everyone involved.
Meanwhile, the ODM Leader also witnessed the inaugural commercial flight from Nairobi to Homa Bay, a new local route that will serve the South Nyanza tourism circuit.
