Nairobi - An MP who ditched ODM for the ruling Jubilee Coalition says he was kicked out of his latest position by the Raila Odinga led party.
Kilifi North MP Gideon Mung'aro who was recently kicked out as head of the Coast Parliamentary Group in Parliament says that the move was orchestrated by ODM.
He argues that they are the ones who have been on his case in the wake of his move to support a Jubilee candidate in the just ended Malindi by election.
He adds that the move out kick him out of the Coast PPG was a desperate ploy to flex ODM muscles.
" The reality is that I was forced out of the group by ODM," he says.
He argues that the meeting and resolve to change the Coast PPG leadership came after the failed attempt to lure him back to ODM.
" They are bitter but I will fight. There is nothing more I can do," he added.
Last year, Mung'aro was also stripped of several positions in Parliamentary Committees as a result of his flirtations with the ruling coalition.
He is already on record as saying he has no time with ODM and will work with the ruling Jubilee Coalition all the way to the 2017 General Elections.
