Nairobi - Four MPs have failed to appear before an ODM disciplinary committee.
Four MPs did not show up but lawyer Kioko Kilukumi presented their written responses.
Kilukimi also sought the adjournment of proceedings to allow affected members to appear in person at a neutral venue.
The MPs are being investigated by the Committee for leaving ODM for the Jubilee Party ans asked to explain why they should not be disciplined thus losing their seats.
" Please consider that the honourable leaders are willing to appear but not on this date nor venue," Kilukumi said.
13 leaders were sanctioned by ODM for the purpose, with submissions taking place from Friday.
If ODM does insist on disciplining them, the MPs will have to bear with by elections as prescribed by the law.
