Junet Mohamed’s Silence in ODM Spark Speculations

Over the past few years, Suna East MP Junet Mohamed has been so vocal in all political arena as far as criticism on Deputy President William Ruto’s camp is concerned.

The Raila Odinga allied MP has been on the forefront pushing for the BBI endorsement and referendum since its inception after the March 2018 handshake between President Uhuru and his other brother Raila Odinga.

The second term MP has been one of Raila Odinga’s staunchest ally and among the quickest troubleshooters in the ODM party.

However, the vocal MP seemed to have gone slow on his engagements on ODM party matters. Over the past few days, Minority Whip in the National Assembly has avoided public appearances for some time now, with his usual rants on Twitter towards Ruto’s camp suggestively missing for over a week now.

This was imminent during last Monday’s BBI launch function at the Bomas of Kenya where unlike the previous event where he was the Master of Ceremony, Junet was conspicuously missing from the public limelight, leaving many with questions on what could have transpired inside the opposition party.

Observers have opined that Junet’s silence could have been caused by infighting within Raila’s inner circle.

A week ago, popular city lawyer Ahemednasir Abdullahi claimed that he had information that Junet might soon be kicked out of ODM. And on Thursday, the Ruto allied lawyer revisited the subject and suggested the there could trouble in Mr. Odinga’s kitchen cabinet.

“When you don’t hear from Hon @JunetMohamed for 6 days, then know that things are politically ELEPHANT for his side of the political divide,” Ahmednasir observed.

And in a quick response, Junet, without expounding more on his whereabouts, dismissed the lawyer’s speculations as “fitina” allegations that he has gone missing from the political scene.

“SG Wacha Fitina,” responded Junet.

Abdullahi’s claims could hold some water… and if that is not the case, the question remains, where has Junet Mohamed disappeared to?
