Labour Party of Kenya (LPK) leader Ababu Namwamba and his party officials were on Sunday barred from leaving a church compound in Mombasa County for 20 minutes after ODM supporters blocked his convoy, demanding an explanation as to why he betrayed the party.

Ababu and his team had just attended Sunday church service at Glory worship center at Bangladesh slum, when his procession was blocked at exit point by angry youths.

Addressing the congregation during the service, Ababu had accused both the CORD coalition and Jubilee administration for failing to deal with corruption in the country.

He said ODM governors leading drought-stricken counties were busy abetting corruption, as their constituents suffered, yet the government had doled out famine relief cash.

His remarks seemingly angered ODM supporters and drama ensued as Ababu rose to address the public shortly after leaving the service. Youth blocked the church exit, chanting anti-Ababu slogans.

Eventually, Labor party officials managed to escape from the area and proceeded to Kwale County. They maintained that they were not the target – instead saying that the youth were after a local who was in their midst.

Ababu was accompanied by Bungoma senatorial aspirant and journalist David Makali, LPK secretary general Peter Ole Musei and other party delegates.
