ODM expels Jalang’o and 4 other MPs, survivors given hefty fines of up to Sh1 million

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