Nairobi - The Orange Democratic Movement ODM has continued its assault on former Starehe MP Margaret Wanjiru, with women leaders calling her exit a disgrace.
The women leaders who spoke during a press conference in Nairobi Tuesday, called her unceremonious exit a disgrace and termed the move to bad mouth the party uncouth.
Led by Busia Women representative Florence Mutua, the women leaders called Wanjiru ungrateful for her utterances towards a party that stuck through thick and thin with her.
" It was disgraceful that she left the party that stuck with her through especially bad and good times in such a bad manner, Mutua said.
Wanjiru also leveled blame for her failure in the March 2013 General Elections on the party leadership and especially leader Raila Odinga, a move Mutua termed unforgivable.

" We know that it did not end well but for her to level blame on Raila after all the party has done for her is unfortunate, she added.
The leaders also called on Kenyan women to support the Okoa Kenya referendum campaign, saying it was geared to help women grow as entities.
Wanjiru announced last month that she had quit ODM and was shopping for a new party.
It is rumoured that she is eying a position in the ruling Jubilee coalition, a claim she has yet to substantiate.
