Nairobi - Leaving the opposition to join the Jubilee Party was an easy decision, an MP has said.
Navakholo MP Emmanuel Wangwe says that he decided to move to the ruling Party since it had offered hope for the growth of the western Kenya economy.
He says that remaining in an non performing opposition was of no help to his people.
He cautioned opposition leaders from forcing leaders who have shifted to return to their parties or face by elections, saying it was their democratic right.
" By forcing us to attend summons and answer letters is a sign that they are undemocratic. We have chosen to leave to do better for our people, not have fun," he told News24.
According to the MP, those who have moved are exercising their rights.
" Everyone has a right to a decision as long as it is for the benefit of Kenyans," he continued.
Parties in the opposition have threatened to force defecting leaders to go through by elections in-order to redeem themselves after quitting the parties that sponsored them to Parliament.
