Two ODM MPs ready to quit for Jubilee
04 February 2016, 12:41
Nairobi - The Orange Democratic Movement ODM has started plans to kick two MPs who are alleged to have decamped to the Jubilee Coalition.
The party said in a statement Thursday that the two MPs, Kilifi North's Gideon Mung'aro and his Kilifi South counterpart Mustafa Iddi have yet to respond to letters asking them to explain their conduct in recent months.
The two have been openly seen in the company of Jubilee Coalition leadership and have absconded all ODM and the larger CORD coalition's affairs.
" They have acted arbitrary to the party Constitution and will face disciplinary action," ODM Director of Political affairs Opiyo Wandayi told News24.
In a letter dated 21 January 2016, the two had been asked to explain why they should not be kicked out of the party for various offences.

They are yet to reply after the expiry of the 7 day notice to do so.
But in a rejoinder, Mung'aro stated that he was not afraid of any disciplinary action.
" I have already stated my feelings about the party. Any sort of action does not mean anything to me and they know it," he stated.
He said he was willing to leave the party if they kick him out.
" I will go. If they want me out I will move on to the next option," he said bullishly.
