Bungoma - Budalangi MP, Ababu Namwamba has denied Deputy President William Ruto's claims that he is set to join Jubilee after ditching ODM.
The lawmaker on Sunday emphasized that together with other leaders from Western Kenya, they are focusing on uniting the region.
"For the avoidance of doubt, there is no deal by myself or any member of my team to join the Jubilee Party," he explained.
"My colleagues and I are firmly focused on our agenda of realizing the political aspirations of the Mulembe Nation and the bigger western renaissance.

"We shall not be distracted by the wild propaganda and speculation about our destination or who we shall partner with in that journey," added Ababu in a statement.
The legislator warned DP Ruto and other politicians against taking credit for his recent decision to decamp from ODM.
"We are quite flattered by the reported desire of the DP to have us in Jubilee but no, thanks. We are not available. And it would be reckless for anyone to attempt to take credit for our actions for any ulterior motive. We wish the DP and Jubilee Party well, nonetheless."
