The Star (Kenya) - - Politics General -

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.
