Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) Secretary General Edwin Sifuna has declared his readiness and willingness to resign from the position over its latest woes.

Sifuna was speaking on a local radio show on Monday morning when he acknowledged being under pressure from party supporters, noting that most of the blame has been on him after the defeat.

This comes only days after the party lost in both the Ugenya and Embakasi South by-elections, with the blame landing on the party leadership for employing poor strategies.

He expressed his readiness to vacate the seat should the need arise, and leave it to other persons deemed better and able to steer the party in the right direction.

“Ikiwa inaonekana sifanyi kazi vizuri niambiwe. Sina shida kuambiwa na kukosolewa ama kuambiwa niondokee mwingine (I am ready to exit the office for another person if my leadership is considered insufficient),” he said.

The former Nairobi senatorial aspirant acknowledged that the party has many other youthful and able persons who can take up different leadership roles in the political outfit.

He hailed the Raila Odinga-led side, terming it a steady bloc whose strength and talented membership cannot be matched by any other party in the nation.

“Katika ODM tuko na talanta nyingi, sijaona chama chenye talanta kama ODM. Tuko na watu wa kutosha kuongoza (we have enough leaders in ODM who can occupy the different available spots. We are a very talented party),” said Sifuna.

Do you think it’s a wise decision for Sifuna to take?
