I’ll take over as ODM chair, Babu Owino says as Mbadi announces plans to quit
Babu Owino, the Embakasi East MP now says he is ready to take over John Mbadi as ODM chairperson.
This comes after Mbadi declared that he is ready to quit the role.
“We wish you well John Mbadi as you step down from ODM Party Chairmanship.It is now my time to take over from where you have left and steer the Party to greater heights,’ he said.
Mbadi on Tuesday declared that he is ready to quit his national party role claiming there is plot to oust him.
“It is not that I have to be the chair throughout. Nine years I have been the chair is just enough. If elections are done and someone takes it there is no problem. If any ODM members feel that they need another chairperson, I have no problem with that,” Mbadi told Nation.Africa.
He was responding to queries over his absentia in the Azimio rallies.
This now adds to the crack in the party after a section of ODM members met with President William Ruto on Tuesday at State House.
