ODM has denied claims that its MPs asked President Uhuru Kenyatta to endorse Mr Raila Odinga for the 2022 presidential contest during a funeral ceremony in Kisumu County.
The party termed the claim as misrepresentation of facts and accused the media of refusing to give the public facts.
In a statement, the party said : “It is appalling to see the media report that Senate Minority Leader James Orengo and his National Assembly counterpart John Mbadi pleaded with the President to name Mr Odinga as his successor in the 2022 election,” the party said in a statement signed by Director of Communication Philip Etale.
“This is a blatant lie aimed at misleading the public,” Mr Etale said, arguing that the party feels that media houses that published the claims owed it, and the two legislators, an apology.
The party clarified that the two spoke about the fight against corruption and the unity of the nation.
