Elections should go on as scheduled despite the exit of the IEBC board, says Ababu

Nairobi - Former ODM Secretary General  Ababu Namwamba has  vowed to resist any attempts to change the date of the 2017 general elections despite the exit of the IEBC board.

Ababu called for the speedy conclusion of the  of the reforms at the IEBC  to have the elections conducted on time as per the Constitution.

"We want the elections to be held on 8th August, 2017 and any sinister motives to change the date will be resisted at all costs," he said in Amagoro on Saturday where he had met over 100 youths from Teso North and South regions  at Hotel Levantes.

The Budalangi MP  told  the select committee to spare the IEBC Chief Executive Officer  Ezra Chiloba from the sack  saying the dirt orchestrated by James Oswago  should not be vented on the son from Mulembe nation.

"I will  resist any attempts to victimize the EACC chair Philip Kinisu also from Mulembe nation  through lynch mob style  saying the torture meted on the former  Deputy  Chief Justice Nancy Barasa will not be allowed to replicate on the duo," he said.

Ababu also hit on those  opposed to Water  and Irrigation Cabinet  Secretary  Eugene Wamalwa to vie for governorship in Nairobi County saying the constitution allows Kenyans to vie for elective position anywhere in the country.

He revealed  that a new party to champion the interests of those who are neither in Jubilee nor in Cord will be unveiled in Nairobi in two weeks time which he termed as the third force.

He reiterated that plans were at an advance stage and that the new party would be unveiled in Kenya's capital Nairobi.

"This will be after holding meetings at the Coast and Nairobi starting Monday." The Budalangi legislature added.

Ababu  said he does not want to be the  Governor of Busia but he wants to unite  the people of Western Kenya  to speak in one voice.

"I am not  against Governor Sospeter Ojaamong. I am only rooting for development and service delivery.

He  declared that  he has totally cut ranks with ODM.

" If you forget something you forget it all together," he said  and  that he will never mention anything to do with  ODM in his future meetings.

Ababu said he is a Teso by assimilation. " I am one of you having schooled in Kolanya Boys High School and made so many friends including Michael Ikolak who was a classmate.

I  have very good geographical knowledge of Teso region.
He recalled  one day   when they walked all the way from Kolanya after a strike to present their petition  to Amagoro DCs office just as a 13-year old.

This he said is a proof enough that he is at home whenever he is in Teso land.   Ababu  arrived at the venue with an entourage of over 50 youths from Bunyala some wearing the Mulembe consciousness T-Shirts.
