Nairobi - I am not afraid of a by-election, an ODM MP who has defected to the Jubilee Coalition says.
Igembe Central MP Cyprian Kubai says that he is ready to back his move to relocate to the Jubilee Party if needs must.
According to Kubai, the move to jump ship was an initiative of the people of Igembe and he is certain that they will back him come the by election, if it indeed suffices.
" The by election can come. The people will back me. I am confident," he told News24.
He termed the move to join Jubilee as one that he is certain he does not regret.
" In 2013, I went with ODM in a Jubilee stronghold and won. I am confident that if I have to go back to the ballot then I will prevail," he added.
Kubai is among 13 leaders who face by elections if ODM goes on with its threat to report them to the registrar of parties for breach of the electoral code, which might mean they lose their seats.
