James Orengo Positioning Himself To Succeed Raila Odinga?


James Orengo Positioning Himself To Succeed Raila Odinga?

The recent utterances and actions of Siaya senator James Orengo have been interpreted by many as him positioning himself for bigger things.
When ODM senators decided to oust Moses Wetangula from the position of Minority Leader in the Senate and replaced him with Orengo, many expected the lawyer to turn down the offer.
James Orengo not only assumed his new role as the Minority Leader but also defied pleas from his party leader Raila Odinga that he rejects the appointment because ODM risked losing support from the Bungoma region where Wetangula hails.
In recent political rallies in his Siaya backyard, Orengo has publicly shown opposition to the handshake between Raila Odinga and Uhuru Kenyatta saying the handshake has not helped solve problems that people face.
He was particularly angered by the mistreatment of Miguna Miguna by the state at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport from where he was eventually deported to Dubai. He has since gone back to Canada.
There are very high chances, pundits say, James Orengo is being used by Raila Odinga himself, to put across political statements he does not want to be on record for.
