ODM MP dumps RAILA ODINGA and vows to defend his seat in 2027 on UDA ticket – RUTO has opened my eyes

Thursday, January 11, 2024 - An outspoken Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) Member of Parliament has officially dumped the party and joined President William Ruto’s Kenya Kwanza Alliance.

Speaking in Laikipia County where he had accompanied the president for a series of development meetings on Wednesday, Kajiado Central MP Elijah Memusi Kanchori pledged allegiance to Ruto and said he will defend his seat in 2027 using United Democratic Alliance (UDA).

Kanchori further stated that Ruto had changed the conversation in Kenya from elitist politics to wananchi-driven policies, and he would henceforth rally behind projects such as Universal Health Care (UHC), affordable housing, and empowering farmers to boost food security.

“Your excellency, you have changed the conversation of this country. 

"Had we [Azimio la Umoja-One Kenya Coalition] won the 2022 election, by now it would have been turned into a government for the rich. 

"No one will ever win the presidency of this country without talking about issues affecting the common citizens,” the MP said.
