Tuesday August 13, 2019 - The former aide to AU Envoy, Raila Odinga, has cut his ties with the Orange Democratic Movement Party and its leadership effective immediately.
In a letter addressed to the Registrar of Political Parties on Tuesday, Eliud Owalo, who is also eying the Kibra Parliamentary seat following the death of Ken Okoth, cited a widened rift in his ideologies and beliefs and those of the ODM party.
He further highlighted a lack of enthusiasm for his continued support of the party.
"It is with great regret that I write to inform you that I have, with immediate effect, relinquished my membership of the Orange Democratic Movement Party.”
"My resignation is informed by the fact that my political ideology, convictions and beliefs no longer have convergence or depict any congruence and common denominator with that of the ODM Party; its value-orientation and practices," read part of the letter signed by Owalo.
But according to sources, Owalo ditched ODM after learning about a plot by Raila to endorse Ken Okoth’s brother for the Kibra seat.
