Overtly,this is the position Deputy Prime minister ,Musalia Mudavadi,found himself in .After staying in the O.D.M party for a long time where he deputised the party leader,the Prime minister,Raila Odinga,he came to a point of no return where he decided he must part ways with the party;he was seeking for a political divorce so as to seek greener pastures elsewhere.

After procrastinating for a while ,he realized that the grass might be greener across the ridge ,and that’s why he decided to cross the river.

The Deputy Prime minister ,thought wise that he had a dream and an ambition for contesting for the presidency in the forthcoming general elections .And,after many days of soul searching and procrastinating a lot he decided that he might not realize his dream while within the O.D.M party ,and,at the long last he called it quits when the posh came to a shove,before it was too late.

It is worth noting that he had vowed to challenge the Prime minister,for the party primary presidential nominations ,and,that’s why he had called for the ratification of the party nomination rules.But,a cloud of doubt and a smell of a rat made him to take a retreat ,have a change of heart and eventually changing his course of action after realizing that he might be short changed in favour of the Prime minister.

His decision to challenge the P.M had precipitated a clash of opinions within the O.D.M party ,with the Prime minister’s loyalist foot soldiers bashing him to relinguish his ambition in favour of Prime minister .They argued that there was an external force behind the Deputy prime minister ‘s move.They fueled his departure easier due to their continued attack on him which were meant to frustrate him.

One social commentator argued that the Nyanza Members of Parliament asking Mr.Mudavadi,to relinguish his post are not being genuine .Mudavadi has a right to express his displeasure with O.D.M ‘s ways of doing things.This tendency where one is only good when he or she is supporting our “tribe” is not good for this country.Ironically,these are the people who wants us to believe they are democrats.
