James Orengo said ( about Gideon Moi ) : "I was a very strict person during Moi's regime but that never made utter unprintable words against the president, his family or any other politician despite the fact that we never agreed on most matters. When he was admitted to hospital for the last time, his sons Raymond Moi and Gideon Moi allowed me to chat with him for 30 minutes before he died because of how I engaged him as my opponent. Talk as mature people.What do you stand for...What is your idelogy, what d0 you want Kenya to be, what constitutional order do you want in this country? What type of government do you want in this country. This kind of debate is becoming empty in this country. We just know how to call each other names," External link

James Orengo told : “Yes, BBI was a great idea and we were hopeful it would deliver Baba to office. However, the delay in releasing the report has caused jitters over a game likely to leave us in treacherous waters," an MP close to Raila said. He declined to go on record. With claims the BBI train could be headed for derailing, the standoff over the Division of Revenue Formula in the Senate has made made it clear that all is not well with the Uhuru-Raila cooperation. There are claims Uhuru snubbed Raila over talks to unlock the stalemate, despite the proposed formula posing a major threat to the ex-PM as it would hurt his support base in marginalised, sparsely populated areas. If the latest formula were to be approved, giving more weight to population, as in Mt Kenya, Raila's influence at the Coast, Ukambani and Northeastern would be sharply diminished. On Tuesday, Siaya Senator James Orengo revealed the growing fears in Raila's camp that the handshake may not hold when he termed Uhuru "inaccessible". Orengo, a key Raila ally said to having the ear of the opposition leader, even went ahead to claim no President would match Mwai Kibaki whom he said was always accessible. The thing President Mwai Kibaki did probably no other president would be able to do. I am not ashamed of saying that.

James Orengo told : “Yes, BBI was a great idea and we were hopeful it would deliver Baba to office. However, the delay in releasing the report has caused jitters over a game likely to leave us in treacherous waters," an MP close to Raila said. He declined to go on record. With claims the BBI train could be headed for derailing, the standoff over the Division of Revenue Formula in the Senate has made made it clear that all is not well with the Uhuru-Raila cooperation. There are claims Uhuru snubbed Raila over talks to unlock the stalemate, despite the proposed formula posing a major threat to the ex-PM as it would hurt his support base in marginalised, sparsely populated areas. If the latest formula were to be approved, giving more weight to population, as in Mt Kenya, Raila's influence at the Coast, Ukambani and Northeastern would be sharply diminished. On Tuesday, Siaya Senator James Orengo revealed the growing fears in Raila's camp that the handshake may not hold when he termed Uhuru "inaccessible". Orengo, a key Raila ally said to having the ear of the opposition leader, even went ahead to claim no President would match Mwai Kibaki whom he said was always accessible.
