Rarieda member of parliament Otiende Amollo seems to be a tough man not prepared to kneel down before the Raila Odinga led Orange Democratic Movement (ODM).
According to the Rarieda legislator, he would humbly accept the final resolution by the management of the Orange party to expel him from the Justice and Legal affairs committee then walk away in peace.
“The Vicissitudes Of Politics. So, The Schemers Want Me Out Of JLAC. I Will Take It In Grace & Stride.”
Apparently, Otiende Amollo is set to be replaced by the Ruaraka member of parliament TJ Kajwang.
This latest action by the opposition party comes in the wake of push and pulls in the ODM party which has threatened to divide the leaders allied to the Opposition chief Raila Amollo Odinga.
According to some section of leaders, the BBI bill ought to pass without altering comma or full stop, while others argued that there was no point of acting as conveyor belts while they could make changes to the document.
Specifically, the Rarieda legislator were amongst those who said that the document could still be corrected since it was not cast in stone. As a result, he was involved in some bitter exchange with the ODM leadership in the house.
“Mr. Speaker as a matter of law, and this is where I disagree with my chairman, a constitutional amendment can be unconstitutional.” Stated Amollo.
“Now what we have done, and professors of law like John Mbadi saying is not true but that is your view. I am talking about the law. John Mbadi you’ve not stepped in Law school so just allow me,” added Amollo.
It seems the stand by Otiende Amollo on the BBI Bill may have rattled a certain political class who are keen on ensuring that no one stands on the way of the BBI.
