Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party leader Raila Odinga spoke on the infighting that has marred the Jubilee Party.

The AU envoy, in an interview with a local radio station, opined that the Jubilee problems stem from divisions within the party and corruption.

“The Jubilee government has problems because of the divisions. Even when EACC, DCI, and DPP arrest suspects, MPs allied to Jubilee make a lot of noise. This cannot be blamed on the opposition. The corruption is a problem of Jubilee and not the opposition,” Mr. Odinga said.

He went on to explains that although the President was doing everything to make things work, DP William Ruto was busy fighting the government.

Problems Within

“The President is doing a lot to ensure things work out but he is being opposed. The house is divided, with groups pulling in different directions. If I were President Uhuru Kenyatta, I would say 'enough is enough' …" the former Premier said.

"He should make changes in his government, otherwise I am afraid nothing much will come from this administration in the next one-and-a-half years. This is dangerous for our economy," he continued.

Mr. Odinga said he was still in the opposition and his only pact with the Jubilee government was the handshake and the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) adding that he does advise the president when need be.

“We are still in the opposition and MPs elected under ODM keep the government in check. I also advise the President when I see something going wrong,” Mr. Odinga said.
