In Summary

  • Mr Makali told the Budalang'i MP to respect the directive of the tribunal that he does not speak or act on behalf of the party.
  • Mr Namwamba insisted that he was still the party leader terming those seeking to kick him out as charlatans and irritants.

Former Labour Party of Kenya Secretary General David Makali has denounced the party leader describing him as dishonest and only out to satisfy his own interests.

Mr Makali termed Ababu Namwamba, also Budalang'i MP, a stranger in the party.

"Namwamba is an ODM member and is only trying to use LPK to negotiate for deals with Jubilee and to make quick cash," he claimed.

Mr Makali was recently stripped off his position on allegations of secretly working with the National Super Alliance (Nasa).

Mr Namwamba too is facing ouster after his position was challenged at the Political Parties Disputes Tribunal.

Speaking to the Nation on phone, Mr Makali told the Budalang'i MP to respect the directive of the tribunal that he does not speak or act on behalf of the party.

He further said the legislator has never left his former party.

"If you search for his membership number with the registrar of political parties Ababu Namwamba is an ODM Life Member No.000777," he said.
