Orange party has moved in to stem party rebels by unveiling an inclusive party lineup after the botched February party polls.
The party will now have 36 party officials to fill up 27 positions.
In the new lineup Raila Odinga will be the party leader deputised by Mombasa governor Hassan Joho and Kakamega Governor Wycliffe Oparanya. In the February Ababu line up Joho wanted the deputy party leader slot.
