ODM reinstates Homabay County Assembly Majority leader

ODM has reinstated Homabay County Assembly Majority Leader Richard Odingo and his deputy Ruth Ombura.

The two leaders were ousted from their positions following a fall out with County MCA’s.

Speaking on Tuesday, ODM secretary general Edwin Sifuna disagreed with the ouster of the two leaders calling for their immediate return to office.

The MCA’s led by Deputy Speaker Evance Marieba said the two leaders will be replaced by Kanyadoto MCA Walter Muok and Homabay Town MCA Julius Nyambok who will take the Majority Leader and Deputy Majority Leader position respectively.

Mr Ogindo has been accused by the MCA’s of poor leadership and disrespecting the elected leaders. Mr. Sifuna has however called out for a stakeholders meeting where they will iron out any differences.

The meeting will see the two leaders sorting out issues causing a rift with the MCA’s.

Mr. Sifuna also criticized the procedureuder in which the leaders were removed from office terming it as unprocedural and unacceptable.

The ousted Majority Leader Mr. Ogindo however dismissed the claims and insists him and his deputy are still in office.
