The Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) is no longer seeing eye to eye with Narok Senator Ledama ole Kina after launching a bid to kick him out of two key senate committees.

In a notice dated May 6, 2020 by Senate Minority leader James Orengo, Ledama has been discharged from the County Public Accounts and Investments (CPAIC) House Business Committee.

The statement reads,

“In accordance with the Senate Standing Order 190, I hereby give notice of the discharge and removal of Senator Ledama Ole Kina from the County Public Accounts and Investment Committee and the Senate Business Committee.”

Four days into the position Ole Kina now faces unfamiliar waters. He was elected to head the counties watchdog committee after trouncing Kisii Senator Prof Sam Ongeri who got four votes, against his five.

However, Siaya Senator James Orengo opposed Ole Kina’s election stating that he would withdraw the membership of the minority from the committee, until “an appropriate resolution can be made”.

“I express and register dissatisfaction with the conduct and outcome of the elections of the leadership of the County Public Accounts and Investments Committee which were purportedly done today. We intend to withdraw our membership from the said committee until an appropriate resolution can be made,” wrote Orengo.

The tough talking senator has dismissed Orengo’s letter in a tweet post.

“The letter by @orengo_james has got no basis and must be treated with contempt! because this committee is very powerful they want a push over not me.”
