MP joins Jubilee after four years at Orange house
Nominate Member of Parliament Isaac Mwaura has made his move from the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) to Jubilee party official.
Mwaura met ODM leader Raila Odinga Thursday afternoon and officially informed him of his decision to decamp.
Although the MP has recently inclined to Jubilee ideologies and made clear his support for President Uhuru Kenyatta, he had not communicate to his party leader of his intention to decamp.
Mwaura went on social media to announce that he had officially made a decision to work closely with President Kenyatta.
“I’ve today, most respectfully, informed my party leader, Rt. Hon. Raila Odinga, of my decision to work closely with H.E President Uhuru Kenyatta,” he wrote, saying he had consulted with the people of Ruiru.
“This is after extensive consultation with the people of Ruiru and as they say, all politics is local. I remain most grateful and honoured for the special consideration by my Party Leader to nominate me to represent special interests in Parliament and also having served in his office as Advisor on special interest groups.”
“I most consciously appreciate H.E President Kenyatta’s determined inclusion of historically disadvantaged groups in national agenda and resources allocations. This is what my agenda was when I sought to join Parliament and a lot has been achieved so far,” he added.
He also made official that he will be contesting for the Ruiru Parliamentary seat in the August 8, 2017 General Election.
“As I set my eyes on Ruiru Parliamentary seat, I will carry diversity and inclusion in my broad agenda of serving the people faithfully, fearlessly and without favour.”
Mwaura’s decamping is not a surprise to many as political realignments have already started taking shape as the date for the next poll draw closer.
