Drama took centre stage at the Senate after the Orange Democratic Party sought to replace Minority Leader Moses Wetangula and replace him with Siaya Senator James Orengo.

This was after ODM wrote to Senate Speaker Ken Lusaka seeking the removal of Wetangula on grounds that ODM is the biggest minority in the House compared to Ford Kenya hence should produce a Minority Leader.

ODM has 20 Senators compared to Ford Kenya which has one.

Senate Speaker Ken Lusaka however suspended the decision until the NASA coalition appoints a replacement following the prescribed manner.

Speaking after the Speaker’s ruling, Mr. Wetangula accused his ODM counterparts of witch hunt promising to fight his ouster as minority leader to the end.

“All the appointments in this House came from the PG of NASA and not from ODM. NASA is a coalition,” said Wetangula.

“In terms of the Senate, there is no party called ODM, If anyone wants a divorce, it will be noisy, it will be messy.”

This comes just hours after NASA affiliated party leaders; ANC, Wiper and Ford Kenya dared ODM to leave NASA saying that they will led NASA ‘divorce talks’ in Nairobi.
