I will work with Jubilee come what may, vows ODM MP

09 March 2016, 16:37 Philomenah Chebet

Nairobi - An Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) MP from Bungoma County who has announced that he will work with Jubilee has affirmed that nothing will make him change his mind.

Sirisia legislator, John Waluke Wednesday explained that his decision to co-operate and work with the ruling coalition and the government of the day was final and he cannot be intimidated by anyone.

He said his constituency that was previously represented by Cord Co-Principal Moses Wetangula, is the poorest in the country,  noting  that any meaningful development in the region can only be achieved through collaborating  with the national government.

" I made that decision with the  people who elected me into office," he said.

Waluke's comments were in reaction to the failure of a meeting convened by ODM in the presence of party leader Raila Odinga at the Kenya Red Cross Society Hall in Bungoma to discuss and discipline him.

The Bungoma ODM branch delegates meeting attended by Raila Odinga turned chaotic before it was shelved to a later date. Waluke was away an overseas trip at the time.

Delegates mainly from Sirisia Constituency shouted down anybody who attempted to introduce the MP's name threatening to turn violent as Odinga watched in disbelief.

It was at this juncture that the party leader intervened and stressed the need for Waluke to be present so that he could respond to the accusations that he was betraying the party which sponsored him to parliament.

Local party officials dismissed allegations by the branch secretary Majimbo Okumu that Waluke should be disciplined.

They said the statement by Okumu was personal and did not reflect the views of the majority of branch officials. ''We are instead going to convene a meeting to discuss Okumu with a view to taking disciplinary actin against him for disrespecting the chairman.

The MP said Okumu plus a group of MCA's opposed to him were not his equal adding that some of them joy rode on the party's popularity to sneak into leadership.
