ODM suffers confidence crisis after huge loss in Msambweni

What you need to know:

  • Although party leader Raila Odinga argues that ODM’s performance in the mini-polls cannot be used to gauge the party’s influence across the country, its misfortunes point to an outfit in decline mode.
  • Mr Odinga’s party also failed to recapture Embakasi South parliamentary seat, which it held between 2013 and 2017 through Mr Irshad Sumra.

The Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party is walking a tightrope ahead of the 2022 General Election, if its dismal performance in recent by-elections is anything to go by.
