Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) Central Committee led by Raila Odinga expels Uriri Member of Parliament (MP) Mark Nyamita from the party.

In a statement signed by ODM Secretary General Edwin Sifuna on Wednesday, the Committee accused Nyamita of being used by state operatives and the United Democratic Alliance (UDA) to destabilize the party. 

This comes following the chaos that were witnessed at a funeral last week, where supporters of Nyamita and Migori Governor Ochilo Ayacko engaged in a fight forcing a police intervention. 

Following the chaos, Ayacko and Nyamita were subsequently summoned for a disciplinary meeting, but Nyamita skipped without offering any explanation.

“At this stage, the Party wishes to fully dissociate itself from Nyamita. We have granted his wish to no longer be part of us and advise our members in Uriri and Migori generally that he is an agent of UDA with the assigned task of sowing confusion and discord within ODM,” the Committee resolved.

“Nyamita does not speak for nor represent the Party at any level and we advise our members to view and treat him and all those who support him accordingly.”

During the Committee hearing, ODM’s top party leadership was briefed that there was a seemingly calculated plan to destabilize ODM led counties and constituencies.

The destabilization was allegedly orchestrated by rebel legislators who have pledged their loyalty to President William Ruto and his UDA party.

“The idea seems to be to utilize state force particularly the police and the Provincial administration to prop up the so-called rebels in an attempt to penetrate our strongholds,” ODM stated.

In Migori’s case, ODM alleged that police officers fired teargas at mourners at the direction of Mark Nyamita.

ODM in its statement asked the Ministry of Interior through Principal Secretary Raymond Omollo to stop intimidating its supporters and elected leaders. 

“We will be lodging formal complaints to the relevant authorities in the next few days,” the Party threatened.
