Friday June 10, 2016 – Budalangi Member of Parliament, Ababu Namwamba, has disobeyed former Prime Minister Raila Odinga once again and gone against his directive.
Namwamba led a group of CORD MPs to sit in joint committees of Parliament seeking to resolve the IEBC standoff.
Namwamba’s move came barely a day after Raila Odinga asked CORD lawmakers to withdraw from participating in the two parliamentary processes in a bid to resolve the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) stalemate.
The Budalangi MP led a group of CORD legislators among them Manson Nyamweya (South Mugirango, ODM) Olago Oluoch (Kisumu West, Ford Kenya) and Deputy Minority Whip, Chris Wamalwa (Kiminini, Ford Kenya) to disobey Raila Odinga.
He also made it made it clear that he supports dialogue through Parliament and not outside Parliament as Raila is demanding.
“It is clear we support the dialogue within the context of Parliament,” Namwamba said.
Namwamba who is said to have been paid millions to scatter the ODM by the jubilee appeared confused.
Mr. Namwamba who is also said to have made millions as the chairman of the PAC and is known to own a big house in Budalangi Constituency. According to people familiar with his situation, he acquired most of it with ill gotten wealthy after compromising the opposition for personal gain. Mr. Namwamba is also known to ride in Helicopters after eating bread where it is buttered the most!
“No one forces Ababu to do that which he does not desire to do…I also don’t know how to pretend. I say what I mean and mean what I say. I do that which my conscience is very clear about,” Namwamba emphatically stated.
