MP: Luhyas will troop out of ODM if Ababu is ousted from PAC

09 March 2015, 11:55

Nakuru - Funyula Member of Parliament, Paul Otuoma has warned that the Luhya community will troop out of the Orange Democratic Movement if Budalangi Member of Parliament, Ababu Namwambwa, is ousted from the powerful parliamentary Public Accounts Committee.

Speaking Sunday at Luhya elders consultative conference at Naivasha's Samba Lodge, Otuoma said that they have been faithful to the ODM party and its leader Raila Odinga, and warned that the community was watching keenly the war being waged against Namwamba.

Otuoma, who is also the national chairman of ODM, said that it was time for the Luhyas to chart their own political destiny and stop depending on other people's political vehicles.

“Let them not think that we are just quiet. If they eject Ababu out of the party and PAC, then they should be prepared to part ways with the Luhya community because we cannot just sit and watch others treat us like second class members of the party,” said Otuoma.

Otuoma added that the Orange Democratic party has not come out to defend Ababu from the accusations he is facing but has instead left him to fight on his own.

“There are people in ODM who are determined to do everything possible to see Namwamba dead politically but we want to tell them that it is not cast in stone that we must be in ODM,” he said.

The Luhya Council of Elders have been holding meetings in Naivasha for the second week running to chart the political future of the second largest community in Kenya in terms of numerical strength.
