ODM MPs offered government positions after 2017 polls

19 July 2016, 16:46 William Korir

Nairobi - The Jubilee Coalition has offered ODM MPs willing to quit the opposition government jobs once the 2017 election is over if indeed they lose their respective races in the ballot.

According to sources close to the Jubilee think tank, former Westlands MP Fred Gumo, who is being tasked with taking leaders from western Kenya to the Jubilee Coalition has told leaders that they will be offered lucrative government positions in the event they lose the polls while on a Jubilee ticket.

One MP who was handed the offer was Funyula's Paul Otuoma.

" The MP has been offered a government job in the event he loses the coming election while out of ODM," the source stated.

Otuoma as well as Budalang'i MP Ababu Namwamba have been keen on leaving the opposition despite the fact that they know they would likely lose their various seats if they contested with the ruling coalition.

But with the offer of jobs, they could be swayed.

Recently, DP Ruto stated that he had convinced MPs to quit ODM for Jubilee, boasting that he had been the reason behind the problems in the opposition.

The move forced Ababu to state that he had not received any money from the DP to quit ODM.
