The National Executive Committee (NEC) of the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) announced the expulsion of Lang'ata MP Phelix Odiwuor alias Jalang'o following a crucial meeting chaired by party leader Raila Odinga.

The decision came as a result of deliberations during the meeting, which addressed various party matters, among them a report of the disciplinary committee which has been looking into conduct of some members of ODM, elected and nominated on the party ticket.

Jalang'o was among those facing allegations of violating the party constitution and the Political Parties Act 2011 by openly associating with and supporting rival political parties.
