ODM lead­er­ship not sin­cere over de­mand to kick out party rebels, say MP Arama

The Star (Kenya) - - Counties -

Nakuru Town West MP Sa­muel Arama has ac­cused ODM leader Raila Odinga of dic­ta­tor­ship.

He said the party lacks democ­racy and is threat­en­ing to kick out rebels. “We read in the me­dia about let­ters we have ‘re­ceived’ from the party’s dis­ci­plinary com­mit­tee. We have not re­ceived any let­ter and we treat that as mere pro­pa­ganda,” he said yes­ter­day dur­ing an in­ter­view with the Star.

Arama said rebels still pay Sh20,000 monthly con­tri­bu­tions to the party. “If they were true to their word, why are they still re­ceiv­ing our money? If they are gen­uine, they should have stopped,” he said.

Arama de­nied claims the rebels were paid cash to join the Ju­bilee Party. “Why should some peo­ple claim I re­ceived Sh5 mil­lion to join JP? That’s my two months salary,” he said.
