19 March 2016, 19:27
Nairobi - An ODM MP has told President Uhuru Kenyatta and his Deputy William Ruto that he is ditching the opposition for the ruling Jubilee Coalition.
Nakuru Town West MP Samuel Arama announced Thursday in Nakuru during President Kenyatta and Ruto's tour of the county that he is part of the Coalition.
He stated that he was looking to a coalition that could help the lives of Kenyans, not one that was stagnant and lacking in ideas.
He told the gathering at State House Nakuru that he was happy to work with the government.
" I am happy to be here. I think that I have said in the past that I am ready to work with the government and this is a show that I have crossed over," he said to cheers from the crowd in attendance.
The President and the DP then shook hands with Arama before Ruto gave a speech about the MP.
" He has decided to work for his people and he know that it is through Jubilee," the DP stated.
Arama has been an outspoken critic of CORD leader Raila Odinga.
He says that CORD is a party of people lacking in leadership qualities and vision.
