The Lugari councillors led by the council chairman David Amaswache who urged the DPM Musalia to quit the ODM party.

As the in fight within the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) between the Prime Minister Raila Odinga and his deputy Musalia Mudavadi on who is supposed to be the flag bearer of the party intensifies, Lugari county council councilors have appealed to the deputy premier to walk out of the ODM and seek his presidential bid on another party.

Led by the council chairman Mr. David Lichenga Amaswache, the councilors alleged that ODM had proved to lack democracy and that it was championing dictatorship thus it was right time for Musalia to ditch the part.

The councilors played off allegations that ODM was currently the most popular party within the country arguing that the era of party politics was long gone and that Kenyans were looking at individuals, but political parties. They urged Musalia never to listen to threats from some of the ODM top officials who dared him to leave the party saying that he was fighting a losing battle that will make to regret his move.

Encouraging him to move on with his ambitions to rule this country Mr. Amaswache said that every Kenyan had democratic right to vie for presidency and other elective post without necessary looking at the political parties or his tribe and that was upon Kenyans to decide who will be their next president.

At the same time the councilors called on all political leaders from the region to rally behind Mudavadi and give him necessary support in his race to state house arguing that the region was no longer interested in vice president’s slot but it should go for the top seat. All the 20 councilors from the council vowed to attend the Saturday’s rally organized by the DPM at Kakamega and promised to give him full support in his battle.
