Why are Western MPs leaving ODM?

15 July 2016, 14:02 Marc Mbugua

Nairobi - Former Westlands MP has said that he will not apologize for turning this back on the ODM party and its leader, Raila Odinga.

The one time minister for Regional Authorities and Development Fred Gumo has now turned against his former political bedfellow and ODM leader, Raila Odinga.

Speaking in Nairobi, Gumo noted that Raila has reached his “political menopause” and warned members of the Luhya community against staying in both “economic and political cold."

“Raila will never be President and that is why I am telling people from Western region to rethink their political stand and join the Jubilee government or be prepared to suffer for another five years from 2017,” he warned.

The former MP said the biggest problem in ODM is that officials particularly from Western are never consulted on any party activities, their positions notwithstanding.

He supported the departure of legislators Ababu Namwamba (Budalang’i), Paul Otuoma (Funyula) and John Waluke (Sirisia) from ODM noting that they had the right to leave.
