Obado de­nies he is part of the team fi­nanc­ing Namwamba’s Labour Party

The Star (Kenya) - - Counties Nyanza -

Mig­ori Gov­er­nor Okoth Obado has said he is not among the fi­nanciers of the Labour Party of Kenya.

LPK has been ac­quired by Bu­dalang’i MP Ababu Namwamba, the for­mer ODM sec­re­tary gen­eral. Obado has re­but­ted claims he is among those bankrolling Namwamba’s out­fit.

“I only hear through the press that Ababu has a third force, I have not seen Ababu or gone to him,” Obado said.

The gov­er­nor said the re­ports are po­lit­i­cal pro­pa­ganda by his ri­vals to at­tach him to Namwamba’s party. He said he is in ODM.

Last week on so­cial me­dia, Obado was linked to LPK as an op­tion if he gets locked out dur­ing ODM pri­maries. But Obado said he is ready to face the seven ODM as­pi­rants try­ing to un­seat him.
