ODM now looks for new partners ahead of the coming general elections.

The latest moves come after ODM's embarrassing loss in the Matungu by-election in which its candidate David Were was floored by ANC's Peter Nabulindo.

ODM officials including Raila Odinga's brother Oburu accuse the 'deep state' and Jubilee operatives of facilitating the ANC win in Matungu to weaken Raila's probabilities in the region.

Jubilee has also decided to field a candidate in the Bonchari by-election on May 18 notwithstanding ODM's beliefs that Uhuru would drop out of the contest to give them support.

KANU on Thursday declared that it had withdrawn its candidate in favour of Jubilee's Zebedeo Opore, confusing Raila's game plan to win the seat and grow his support in the Gusii region.

“We have pulled out of the elections and want to give Jubilee a sure win in Bonchari,” Gideon, the Baringo senator and KANU chairman said.

Bothered by the One Kenya Alliance and fears Raila was falling out of favour within Uhuru's men, ODM declared that it is crafting for a new alliance, possible with UDA.

"Knowing that partnerships are an essential part of our politics, the Orange Democratic Movement is also working on a broader, better and stronger alliance that will shake the country and shape the politics of the land for years to come,” ODM secretary general Edwin Sifuna said.
