Kenya politics: Raila’s ODM party is breaking up now that his deputy leader Mudavadi exits due to dispute
Posted by African Press International on April 24, 2012
ODM party of Kenya led by Prime Minister Raila Odinga is being eaten slowly. Former Minister William Ruto who was Deputy Party leader number 2 started the eating process when he moved out. Later he was followed by the Coast leader and former Tourism minister Mr Balala, and now the Deputy Prime Minister Mr Musalia Mudavadi of Western bloc leaves the party accusing Raila Odinga of exercising dictatorial powers..
The party is disintegrating and may soon become a tribal party if the Party leader Mr Odinga does not act quickly so that senior members in the party do not leave him alone in the ODM.
Kenya politics is not easy because the country comprises of 42 tribes and most leaders prefer supporting their own tribes when it comes development in regions.
The general elections around the election is now fueling tribal feelings.
The leaders are now choosing who to work with and the International Criminal Court case facing some leaders in the country is also another huge problem to overcome because it divides the country.
