I did not sign deal with DP Ruto, ODM MP says
12 September 2016, 08:56
Nairobi - Ababu Namwamba says that he never signed a deal with DP William Ruto over moving to the Jubilee Coalition.
The Budalang'i MP says that he did not agree with the DP to join the ruling coalition and that any talk of that taking place is rubbish.
He says that he is pursuing a Luhya people agenda and that he will not be swayed by empty talk.
" I did not agree to join Jubilee. I have said before that I am for Luhya unity and will fight for it to no end," he stated.
With MP's who had supposedly agreed to join his third force movement having gone elsewhere, Ababu is not at all perturbed.
" In politics you win some and lose some," he added.
The MP, despite seemingly quitting his ODM party is likely to return and face the 2017 elections using the ticket, with his options narrowed down.
" He is welcome back if and when he makes his mind up and admits his mistakes," ODM chairman John Mbadi stated on Saturday of Ababu's options.
