Kwale - Kwale Governor Salim Mvurya has said he is not afraid of any disciplinary action Orange Democratic Movement( ODM) will effect on him after defecting to Jubilee.
Speaking to News24 Wednesday, a day after ODM threatened to kick him out of the party alongside 12 other leaders, Mvurya said he has no regrets for joining Jubilee party and he is ready for any consequences.
The Raila Odinga led party on Tuesday released the names of three Governors and 10 MPs, who risk losing their seats, after they publicly declared their defection to the new party.
According to a statement by the ODM Disciplinary committee chairman Fred Athuok, each of the 13 leaders have been send letters and are expected to respond in writing within seven (7) days, as to why they should not be punished.
But Mvurya while speaking to journalists after appearing before the Senate Public Accounts Committee denied receiving a show cause letter from the party,) regarding his defection to the recently launched President Uhuru Kenyatta’a party Jubilee Party (JP).
The Kwale County Boss said he is willing to respond once ODM serves him with the letter, which he noted he also learnt from the media.
“I have not received any letter from ODM as of now and so there is no comment I will make on those matters. Once I get the letter and I see the contents inside, I will see what to do,” he said.
“But right now, I have only read that in the media. When you receive a letter with real issues then you can act on it but as of now I don’t have it,” said Mvurya.
