Ababu needs Raila more than Raila needs him, says ODM leader

20 June 2016, 10:17 Jackson Okata

Nakuru - The Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party has dared Budalangi member of Parliament Ababu Namwamba to ditch the party for Jubilee.

ODM Nakuru County chairman, Peter Ole Osono said that Ababu will be finished politically if he ditches Raila Odinga, the man who moulded him politically.

Osono said that Ababu is who he is because of Raila and ditching his political god-father is like digging his political grave.

Speaking Sunday in Nakuru, Osono said that Ababu needs ODM and Raila more that ODM and Raila need him.

"People are saying that ODM will be dealt a blow should Ababu decamp but we want to tell them that Raila is the one who moulded Ababu politically and if he decamps and ditches Raila, that will be the beginning of his end in Kenya's politics," he said.

"We dare him to decamp if he is a real man," charged Osono.

Osono added that ODM is not moved by Ababu's expected move to Jubilee, saying that the party will get his replacement in record time.

Ababu currently serves as the ODM Secretary General.
