Nairobi - Cracks have started to emerge in the Raila Odinga led ODM party after nine MPs threatened to walkout of the outfit.

"We are not happy with what Mbadi is doing. He has conducted several meetings in western Kenya without notifying sitting party MPs from the region," said Otuoma.
"Raila should tell us if we are guests in the party or not, so that we can make appropriate moves. We have contributed to the success of ODM," he added.
MPs at the press briefing included Ababu Namwamba (Budalangi), John Waluke (Sirisia), Raphael Otaalo (Lurambi) among others.
