Kisumu Senator Prof. Tom Ojienda has broke his silence after the ODM National Executive Council (NEC) expelled him and others from the party.
Senator Ojienda was among MPs who were expelled over “gross misconduct and going against party position.”
But speaking few hours after the decision was announced, a defiant Senator Ojienda said he had no apology to make.
“My Party has today expelled me for working with HE President William Ruto. I have no apology and will continue to work with the President,” he affirmed.
Those who have been expelled include; MPs Elisha Odhiambo (Gem), Gideon Ochanda (Bondo), Caroli Omondi (Suba South), Felix Odiwuor (Lang’ata) and Senator Ojienda.
The lawmakers were part of ODM team that visited President William Ruto at State House, Nairobi earlier this year, irking the opposition party.
Rongo MP Paul Abuor and Uriri MP Mark Nyamita – who also attended the State House meeting – have been reprimanded and fined KSh1 million each.
Abuor and Nyamita appeared in person before the party’s Disciplinary Committee and explained reasons for their actions.
