Babu Owino: It is my time to take over as ODM chair

2 Min Read

Embakasi East member of parliament Babu Owino has said he is ready to take over from John Mbadi as ODM’s chairman.

This is after the long serving chair of the orange party declared that he is ready to step down following wrangles that have split the party into two.

“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,” the former Suba South Mp who has been under fire for not attending Azimio rallies said.

Babu who has had problems with Mbadi before has seen this as an opportunity to declare his intention to lead ODM.

“We wish you well Hon. 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 and prosperity. Youth Power,” said on his Facebook page.

This is the second time Babu is squabbling with Mbadi over positions in ODM. Last September, the youthful MP caused a storm in ODM over what he termed as betrayal. He lamented that he had been promised appointment as the National Assembly’s Public Accounts Committee (PAC) Chair, but the position was then handed over to Mbadi
