Dilemma for Namwamba after he is kicked out from his Labour party
The petitioner claims that he is apprehensive that Namwamba shall continue misleading the public and enter into transactions or political bargains under the guise of being a member and a party leader of the LPK
The tribunal has barred the former Secretary General of Rails Odinga’s ODM from holding himself or representing himself as a member of Labor Party of Kenya pending hearing and determination of the case filed by Zacchaeus Wangila Simiyu.
The Tribunal directed that the matter be served forthwith for inter-parties hearing on March 28.
According to Zaccheus Wangila Simiyu, a member of the party, Namwamba is not a member of LPK adding that his name does not even appear in the register of LPK.
“At no time has the respondent -Ababu Namwamba been a member of the LPK party and as far as this Tribunal is concerned, he is still a member of ODM,” Wangila said.
Earlier, the court heard that Namwamba was misleading the general public by misrepresenting to them that he is a member and leader of the party.
There were accusations that Namwamba had expelled Bungoma Senatorial hopeful and former TV pundit David Makali from the party, the claims he vehemently denied while on his tour in Garissa.
However, in a statement, the labour party rubbished claims that either of the two had been expelled, faulting the Odinga led ODM of being behind the woes facing LPK.
The petitioner claims that he is apprehensive that Namwamba shall continue misleading the public and enter into transactions or political bargains under the guise of being a member and a party leader of the LPK.
Earlier on, the Tribunal had in another case ruled Ababu Namwamba is still a bona fide of ODM having been removed illegally by the party.
