BY KORIR JUMA,NAIROBI,15TH MARCH 2018-The move by ODM party to replace Moses Wetangula as senate Minority leader has not gone down well with the vocal Bungoma senator who has warned that the Nasa “divorce will be noisy and messy”.
The party wrote to senate speaker Kenneth Lusaka on Thursday expressing its intention to replace him, as Senate Minority leader, with his Siaya counterpart James Orengo.
“If anyone wants a divorce it will be noisy, messy and unhelpful, and it will have causalities. I’m not going anywhere. I was not invited to Nasa – I’m a founder.”
Senate Speaker Kenneth Lusaka told Senators that he had received a letter from Minority Whip Mutula Kilonzo informing him of the decision.
The Speaker, however, told the Opposition coalition to ensure that it follows proper procedures in electing Orengo before the appointment becomes official.
“The removal of Wetang’ula, though valid, stands suspended and will not take effect until a Senator is elected by the coalition in the manner provided by Standing Order 20(1),” Lusaka said.
He added written communication to this effect and minutes concerning the decision must be sent to his office by the Senate Minority.
