DEFECTORS JOINED OTHER PARTIES
Some rebel members joined JP and attended its launch at the Safaricom Stadium, Kasarani, on September 10. However, Namwamba has opted to defend his position on the Labour Party of Kenya ticket. He quit his position as ODM secretary general, saying he was keener on an outfit that would effectively represent Luhyas. He has been traversing the country to campaign for LPK, a party previously headed by former Funyula MP Julia Ojiambo. Last week, ODM de-whipped defectors from National Assembly committees. Chidzuga and Arama had been removed earlier.
