Lang’ata Member of Parliament Phelix Odiwuor, also known as Jalang’o, has said that he is still a member of the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM), a day after he was expelled by the party’s National Executive Committee (NEC).
The legislator was among the five members who were kicked out for associating themselves with President William Ruto. The others included Elisha Odhiambo (Gem), Caroli Omondi (Suba South), Gideon Ochanda (Bondo) and Kisumu Senator Tom Ojienda.
Speaking during a radio show on Radio 47, the MP maintained that he had not received official communication from his party boss, Raila Odinga, and hence would not leave the party.
“Who has kicked me out of the party? ODM belongs to Raila Odinga and if I have not received communication from him then it means I’m still in ODM,” he said.
“Let me tell you this, I will be the Lang’ata MP until 2027. Take this to the bank. There are no changes that will be done.”
According to Jalang’o, he was discussing with his lawyers to appeal the decision but was in no hurry.
Jalango posted a motivational quote from the Bible in another post on his socials saying that God will be able to provide the way of escape that he maybe able to endure.
“No trial is too heavy to lift!
No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man,”
“God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it.CORINTHIANS 10:13″ he wrote on his socials.
