ODM MP to stay despite Odinga argument

11 July 2015, 10:00 William Korir

Nairobi - ODM MP Richard Onyonka says he will not quit the party despite pressure for him to do so after supporting Devolution CS Anne Waiguru against party protocol.

Onyonka has been under pressure to quit the party after openly going against ODM during a parliamentary probe on the CS over issues to do with corruption at the National Youth Service NYS.

Onyonka also got into an argument with Oburu Odinga, referring to him as the Prime Minister's brother , an utterance that did not go down well.

Onyonka though, is adamant that he will not quit the party despite the ongoing debacle.

" I am at ODM to the end. I am going nowhere and my detractors should be aware of that," he told News24 on phone.

" ODM is a democratic part which allows different opinions over certain issues. The fact that I am for or against something does not mean that I am against the party ideals."

" I felt that Waiguru has done a good job at the NYS and that Kenyans deserve a leader like her. Is that bad?", he posed.

Party chiefs though state that they are looking to take disciplinary action against Onyonka, withe ODM head of political affairs Opiyo Wandayi stating that the party cannot continue to be embarrassed by errant officials.

" We need decorum in the party and such behaviour cannot be tolerated," he said Friday of Onyonka's actions.
