    Saboti MP Caleb Amisi weighed in on the matter assuring that Sifuna’s position was still intact.

    “This is fake news. Edwin Sifuna is in the ODM party to stay but we appreciate your continued publicity to the party,” Amisi said.

    Sifuna has been trending for the better part of the day after rumors claimed that he had been fired by ODM leader Raila Odinga.

    As the party’s secretary-general, however, Sifuna can only be hired and fired by the National Executive Committee.

    In his docket, Sifuna deals with the management of party operations, implementation of Party decisions, processing the clearance of persons to be appointed by the National Executive Committee as Party’s nominees to the County Assembly or Parliament.

    Other duties include; voter outreach and membership recruitment, registration, mobilization and maintenance of voters or members register, public relations, communication and media outreach, among others.

    Previously, the seat was held by former Budalangi MP Ababu Namwamba.  However, he ditched the party in 2016  and joined Labour Party, leaving a vacant position.

    He is currently the Foreign Affairs Chief Administrative Secretary (CAS).
