ODM MP openly criticises IEBC protests
08 June 2016, 12:54
Nairobi - The ongoing protests against the IEBC have brought differing views across board and now within the CORD coalition itself.
Ababu Namwamba is known to have been in a number of run-ins with the party and leader Raila Odinga which will reign further thanks to his feelings over the ongoing protests against the IEBC.
Namwamba is known to be against the protests and is currently trying his best to push through resolutions via Parliament which is the Constitutionally provided means to make changes at the IEBC.
He is not apologetic.
" We have to try different ways. We have Parliament where we can make a difference and that is what I'm pushing for," he said.
ODM and CORD have refused to try make changes to the IEBC through Parliament but Ababu is nonetheless trying.
CORD leader Raila Odinga Tuesday ordered the withdrawal of CORD MPs sitting on various committees trying to solve the IEBC impasse and Ababu was not impressed.
The Budalang'i MP has yet to attend the CORD demos and has in recent times been missing from various ODM meetings which he is important to by virtue of being the party's Secretary General.
He says though, that he is a part of ODM still.
" I am a part of ODM. I am loyal to the party. Nothing has changed nor will it change," he states.
