The meeting comes a few days after the party threatened to punish its MPs who have opebly declared support for the DP’s 2022 candidature, a move that was met with equal resistance and trashed by the rebel MPs.

Led by Coast Parliamentary Group chairman Suleiman Dori, the leaders have extended an invitation to the DP to be the Chief Guest at an Iftar dinner that will be held at Ukunda show grounds.

An invite sent by the MPs read to media houses read: “Jambo. Kindly receive invitation for iftar on Sunday at Ukunda show ground. The speeches will start at 3pm. Chief Guest will be H.E. DP Hon. William Ruto. Thank you”.

In what could be seen as daring ODM boss Raila Odinga and the party to crack the whip, the MPs recently trashed threats of disciplinary action by party Secretary General Edwin Sifuna.

The move comes as the battle for Cast region votes intensify with the region warming up to DP Ruto and opposition chief Raila Odinga appearing to lose his firm grip on the region’s politics.

Last week, Mombasa governor Hassan Joho hosted Odinga during an Iftar dinner in Mombasa.

Missing during the event were several leaders who had been critical to Odinga’s campaigns, a sign of the changing tides of Coast politics.
