Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) has refuted reports of a plot to remove Francis Nyenze from the position of minority leader in Parliament.

Speaking at the party’s retreat at Maanzoni lodge in Machakos County on Sunday, ODM chair John Mbadi said he was not privy to the plan, adding that he has only heard of it in the media.

“I don’t know about that. I only read it in the papers,” said Mbadi.

Party elections formed one of the key agenda during the Maanzoni retreat, which brings together the party’s national governing council, in light of the postponed elections that were scheduled for June but have now been slotted for the end of this month.

The fate of ODM rebels is also set to be discussed.

“We are actually working on making it move smoothly this time around, though we are not ruling out any incidences.

“We have made it clear that all leaders are welcome back to the party, because that is what parties are for; to gather all.”

ODM leader Raila Odinga is expected to lead the ODM fraternity during the two day deliberations in Maanzoni Lodge, Machakos County.
