The secret recording that forced Ababu out of ODM

07 July 2016, 11:08 William Korir

Nairobi - According to sources, Ababu Namwamba's impending exit from ODM is the culmination of months of anger for betraying party leader Raila Odinga.

Ababu has quit the ODM Secretary General's position and is expected to quit the party in the coming days.

He has stated that he has been frustrated to no end by some leaders at ODM for the last 3 years, but they in the know, claim it was all about a recording he took of Raila.

Ababu is well remembered for a recording he took of a conversation with the CORD leader and some MPs which he later presented to Parliament.

This was of his dubious time as Public Accounts Committee chairman where he was accused of a multi million shilling bribery scandal.

He was eventually kicked out of the PAC.

That is where his troubles started.

" Recording a conversation with Raila then presenting it as evidence broke the camels back. He has never been forgiven in some quarters and never will," an ODM MP who asked not to be named told News24.

Ababu claimed he took the recording to secure his safety as regards the PAC accusations.

But it seems, the level of hatred caused by the recording was too much to handle.

" The honourable member disrespected a man who had endorsed him to become an MP, a man who stood by him when times were tough and that cannot be erased from the memory of some," another MP stated.

Ababu complained that he had been frustrated in his efforts to be the voice behind the party but it seems, it was a conversation already had in some quarters.

" Ababu's writing was on the wall a year ago and he knows it and to say that he will be missed is untrue," another ODM Mp stated to News24.

" Good riddance,".
