ODM expels Siaya Deputy Governor from the party; In a communique from ODM Siaya coordinating committee drawn from all sub-counties, they reached a decision of letting the deputy governor go.
They outlined that they had to ex- communicate him from the party, because he has been working with the opponent, Kenya kwanza.
The statement read,”Siaya government is an ODM government and therefore all elected and appointed officials are expected to operate within strict confines of the party Constitution.”
“A few officials are prosecuting unsubstantiated claims in the media instead of exploring available mechanisms within the party,” it added.
Subsequently, the committee effected changes in Gem and Bondo party leadership, citing that the individuals would no longer be recognised as ODM members.
They stated,“This meeting has therefore unanimously resolved that the Siaya Deputy Governor be compelled to resign as the DG Since he no longer subscribes to the ideals and aspirations of the party. The meeting resolved he be expelled and he is hereby expelled from the ODM party membership.”
“The committee has endorsed the replacement of sub-county and branch officials who have since decamped to other political coalitions. In particular, this meeting today has endorsed the decision by the Bondo ODM branch and Gem branch to overhaul its entire leadership,” they added.
This comes after the deputy governor, Oduol, made financial impropriety claims against Governor James Orengo and other members of the county assembly.
He stated,”In one day, one junior staff is sent to the bank six to eight times, withdrawing Ksh950,000 each time. This is to circumvent the CBK requirement of going with documents when withdrawing Ksh1 million.”
