The Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) Party has given Lang’ata MP Jalang’o, Embakasi East MP Babu Owino, Nairobi Woman Rep Esther Passaris, chairman John Mbadi and 24 other ODM legislators 48 hours to defend their conduct.

This comes after four opposition MPs voted for the Finance Bill 2023 which sailed through to the third and final reading, while 24 others were absent during the vote.

The listed legislators have been told to explain why disciplinary measures should not be taken against them.

Those who supported the bill include Esther Passaris (Nairobi), Aden Adow Mohamed (Wajir South Constituency), Elisha Ochieng Odhiambo (Gem Constituency) and Caroli Omondi (Suba South Constituency).

Top ODM honchos and close allies of party leader Raila Odinga have also not been spared in the summons, with the likes of party chairman John Mbadi, Rarieda MP Otiende Amollo, and Makadara MP George Aladwa named in the list.

In line with the Party's disciplinary rules, notices to show cause why disciplinary action should not be taken have been issued to the said members. They are expected to respond within the next 48 hours,” ODM Secretary General Edwin Sifuna said.

He said the move was necessitated by the many complaints the party received from its general membership regarding the conduct of its members of the National Assembly during Wednesday’s vote on the Finance Bill, 2023.
