06 July 2016, 14:23
Nairobi - Budalang’i MP Ababu Namwamba says that he has held several
meetings with DP William Ruto and that he has every right to do so.
The MP is currently not in the good books of his party ODM
having clashed with leader Raila Odinga over a number of accusations.
A key one is that he has agreed a deal to jump to the
Jubilee Coalition for the 2017 elections and that he has offered his support to
Ababu who has recently quit as ODM Secretary General says he
has met the DP, just like any other Kenyan can.
“I am Kenyan and I have a right to meet the DP just like all
of us,” he said.
He however refused any suggestions that the meetings have
any political inclinations, saying that they are development oriented.
“In the opposition, we have an obligation to engage the
government of the day on development issues and that is all that truly matters,”
Ababu is rumoured to be leaving ODM with an announcement on the same coming in the next few days.
