ODM MPs cry foul
Written By:Graham Kirwa , Posted: Fri, Apr 18, 2008
A section of ODM members of Parliament from Rift Valley are now threatening to abandon the party citing lack of consultations in key decisions.
The over 10 MPs cited the recent appointment of ministers, which they claim was discriminative locking out the greater Kericho district.
The move coming just a day after the swearing in of the grand coalition government is sending signals that all is not well in the Orange Democratic Movement.
The MPs who Friday claimed to represent the Rift Valley parliamentary group questioned why the greater Kericho which produced over 700-thousand votes for ODM was not considered for any ministerial post by the party.
The disgruntled MPs are now warning they might review ties with the party come the next elections.
The MPS further said they are contemplating on suing the government over the Mt. Elgon military operation alleging the security operation is characterized by intimidation and harassment.
