Thursday, March 25th, 2021
- Sifuna said ODM's new alliance will have younger people with "fresh blood with clear ideological positions on the issues of the day."
The Orange Democratic Movement(ODM) party has hinted at creating a new alliance that will "shake the country".
The ODM party in a statement on Thursday said it has too not been left out in making alliances like the ones made by other parties.
"Knowing that partnerships are an essential part of our politics, the Orange Democratic Movement is also working on a broader, better and bolder alliance that will shake the country and shape the politics of the land for years to come," said ODM in a statement by party Secretary General Edwin Sifuna.
Sifuna said ODM's new alliance will have younger people with "fresh blood with clear ideological positions on the issues of the day."
He said his party has a record of building bridges and coalitions with its perceived enemies and it working on a new alliance.
"But it is not just coalitions and alliances we are working on. We are strengthening ourselves as a party and preparing to compete everywhere in the country," he said.
The announcement by the ODM on Thursday came a few moments after the newly formed 'One Kenya Alliance' thanked Kenyans after winning the Matungu, Kabuchai and Machakos by elections.
The alliance by the Amani National Congress(ANC), The FORD-Kenya, Wiper Democratic Movement and the Independence party KANU said it condemned the recent ousting of Senator Cleophas Malala as the Deputy Minority Leader in the Senate by the ODM.
