Tuesday November 20, 2018 - A section of Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) members who are set to be expelled now insist that they are here to stay.
In a statement to Kenyans, Migori Governor, Okoth Obado, who was recommended for expulsion for publicly supporting Deputy President William Ruto alongside Joseph Nyambori and Festos Mapesa, termed the report by the disciplinary committee as baseless.
According to the report, the three were accused of gross misconduct and violation of the party rules.
The committee also said that Governor Obado has continuously been disobedient, further accusing him of openly opposing the party in the recent Migori Senatorial by-election by backing a rival candidate.
“He has embarrassed the party and the party leader… he has also been campaigning for another candidate outside of the party… we summoned him to come yet he ignored all sittings,” the committee chairperson, Joseph Muniko, said.
The final decision on the recommended expulsion lies in the hands of ODM’s National Disciplinary Committee.
