Rongo Member of Parliament Hon. Paul Abuor claims that the Memorandum of Understanding signed between ODM, Wiper, Ford Kenya and ANC parties ahead the 2017 general elections ended when the three NASA co-principals failed to attend the controversial ‘swearing-in’ of Raila Odinga.

Speaking in Rongo during the disbursement of bursary funds to college students, Hon. Abuor alleged that the marriage between NASA affiliate parties ended on 30th January 2018 after the controversial oathing.

The legislator further said that ODM has now decided to pursue its political agenda as a party and not as a coalition partner of NASA since the other principals betrayed them at the moment when Odinga needed them most.

“When we attended the ‘swearing-in’ on January 30, we told Raila Amolo Odinga that anybody who did not show up on that day like Kalonzo Musyoka, Musalia Mudavadi and Moses Wetangula… any agreement with them ended then. Let them not pester us. And come 2022, Raila will again go back to the ballot alone and not with them,” said the MP.

The legislator further noted that the move by ODM senators to seek Wetangula’s removal as Minority Leader was not just an affair of the ODM senators but that of the party.

“The reason we have decided to take action against Senator Wetangula is because once Raila has given directions to be followed, instead of towing the line, he still wants to question and bring a lot of politics into it,” he added.

During the bursary fund ceremony, Abuor issued cheques worth Ksh.15M out of the allocated Ksh.21M bursary fund to 1097 college students in Rongo constituency.

Abuor however promised that secondary students from the constituency would get their bursary funds next week.
