ODM MP quits for Jubilee coalition

09 June 2015, 16:44 William Korir

Nairobi - ODM MP Samuel Arama has quit the party and says he will contest the 2017 General Elections on a different platform.

The Nakuru West MP said that he was tired of the endless politics and lack of forward thinking within the party and was rethinking his plan going forward.

" I will move from ODM for the 2017 General Elections," he told News24 on phone.

" The party has not vision or mission and I do not think I want to stay in a party which will not deliver for my electorates," he added.

Arama also stated that he would in the meantime support all initiatives put forward by the ruling Jubilee coalition as they had shown willingness to work for the people.

" The government has done wonders in my constituency and my people can attest to that. I will support the Jubilee coalition and their projects," he added.

Arama was one of the MPs caught up in the secret tape recorded by Budalang'i MP Ababu Namwamba in the scandal involving the parliamentary Public Accounts Committee PAC.

It is not yet clear if Arama will jump ship soon, as he will be forced to seek re-election under a different party according to the Political Parties Act.
