Nairobi - An MP has told CORD leader Raila Odinga to kick him out of ODM himself after leaving for the Jubilee Party.
Nakuru Town MP Samuel Arama says that Raila must kick him out of ODM himself and that if he does not, he will only officially leave the orange party a few weeks to the General Elections.
Arama says that he is done with ODM but Raila himself must kick him out.
" Raila must kick me out by himself. If he does not, then I am a part of ODM to the end," he told News24.
He accused the orange party of forcing MPs to sing to tunes they do not want but was clear that he does not mind going through a by election if it meant him legitimising his move to Jubilee.
" I am ready to face a by election if called upon. I am not afraid and am read to go back to the electorate to ask for a fresh mandate," he added.
Arama quit ODM in 2015 citing irreconcilable differences with Raila but only recently defected to the Jubilee Party.
