Labour Party of Kenya (LPK) leader Ababu Namwambu today has dismissed
claims that he had been restrained by the Political Parties Dispute
Tribunal from acting as party member and leader of the party.
Namwamba maintained that he is fully the party leader and member contrary
to reports that he had been relieved of the post, blaming his former
party, ODM of fanning the propaganda.
Speaking at an Eldoret hotel where he graced the occasion for the
party’s North Rift region women congress meeting, Ababu accused ODM of
causing confusion in the labour party leadership with the aim of
making it unpopular.
“Let me reiterate that I am still Labour Party of Kenya leader and at
no time I have been removed as a member or leader as being claimed by my
political critics in ODM,” said Namwamba who is also Budalangi MP.
He told ODM leadership to leave him alone since he had ditched the
party in good faith.
“We know who is sponsoring those who are trying to cause confusion in
the labour party with the aim of making it unpopular among the Kenyans
a head of the August 8 General Election,” said Namwamba.
