Political analyst Brian Mutie now says that opposition leader Raila Odinga's ODM party has been consumed by the President Uhuru Kenyatta-led Jubilee party.
This comes at a time when the two sides seem to be enjoying a good working relationship following the Raila-Uhuru truce of March last year.
Speaking on Radio Maisha's 'Bunge la Maisha' show Monday morning, the commentator said that ODM is now part of Jubilee, hence its silence on matters of national interest.
He observed that the party and its members are no longer interested in Kenyans' woes as it was the case initially, proof that they have been comfortably adopted.
"ODM iko ndani ya Jubilee ndio maana hawaongelei mambo ya kitaifa tena. Kazi yao sasa ni kupigana na Ruto.
(They are well inside Jubilee hence their silence on national issues, their only job currently is fighting Deputy President William Ruto)," he said.
He added that ODM members are most likely in the pact for personal gains and could turn again turn Uhuru into an enemy if the supply is cut.
"Wako pale kujinufainsha wenyewe na huenda wakaleta shida tena iwapo ule mfereji wa mambo mazuri utafungwa kidogo (they are there for personal gains and will most likely revert to their old ways in the event that the tap of goodies is closed)," he added.
However, in a quick rejoinder, Alego Usonga lawmaker Samuel Atandi dismissed the claims, saying that the party is only collaborating with Jubilee.
He added that Raila only joined Uhuru out of goodwill, and would have otherwise asked for slots in the cabinet if he wanted a piece of the government.
"Hatukuwa na conditions, otherwise tungesema Baraza ivunjwe tupewe viti (we didn't have any conditions as otherwise, we would have demanded cabinet slots)," said Atandi.
