Mp in fresh trouble

06 August 2015, 17:16

Nakuru - Nakuru Town West MP Samuel Arama has ran into fresh trouble after a section of the youth from his constituency  accused him of blatantly being  disrespectful  to his party leader.

Speaking to News 24 on Wednesday in Nakuru town  the Youth led by constituency Orange Democratic Movement (ODM )chairman John Abuom asked the MP  to immediately resign from the party.

“The lawmaker has openly used forums attended by Jubilee Coalition leaders to attack Coalition For Reforms and Democracy party leader Raila  Odinga,something that does not please voters,”said Mr Obuom.

The youth accused him of betraying  the party that sponsored him to Parliament  and said they want disciplinary action taken against him.

They said that ODM members in  Nakuru town West  had lost faith in the lawmaker whom they said has successfully woven his downfall ahead of the 2017 elections.

“He was not elected through an ODM ticket to be the government’s ambassador.Let him join the government if he wants,”said Obuom.

The Youth also demanded for an audit of the Nakuru West  Constituency Development Fund to ascertain how money allocated for the Housing and Slums upgrading programme was used.

They claimed that the MP was one of the leaders who should be investigated for embezzlement of public funds.

When contacted by News 24,the MP dismissed the calls to have his resign,saying those saying he was disrespectful to Mr Odinga were selfish political opportunists.

He  also rubished claims of embezzlement of public funds.

The only ODM elected MP in Nakuru county has in several functions castigated ODM leaders accusing them of having double standards and insisted that he was working  with the Jubilee government.

He has also on several occasions publicly declared his readiness to quit the party and defend his parliamentary seat without ODM’s support.

The Youth said they will present a petition to the Party headquarters this week to have the lawmaker kicked out of the party if he won’t resign willingly.
