The ODM rebels have remained hellbent on supporting the Kenya Kwanza government and even visited President William Ruto at State House barely days after they were expelled from the party.
The lawmakers defied all odds and reaffirmed their commitment to work with the government to support development programmes in Nyanza and the wider region.
The MPs, Gideon Ochanda (Bondo), Elisha Odhiambo (Gem), Phelix Odiwuor aka Jalang’o (Lang’ata), Mark Nyamita (Uriri), Caroli Omondi (Suba South), Paul Abuor (Rongo) and Kisumu Senator Tom Ojienda attended Wednesday’s meeting.
The MPs seem unshaken by the threats of their party and their cold move to visit the State House was after the Political Parties Disputes Tribunal threw them a lifeline after issuing an interim order barring ODM from removing their names from the party register.
But their fate could be sealed today as ODM leader Raila Odinga is expected to make a big announcement and address wrangles between the Azimio coalition.
