Former Speaker of the National Assembly, Kenneth Marende, has joined the Democratic Action Party of Kenya (DAP-K)
The move which also saw former Nyamira Senator, Mong’are Okong’o and Matungu MP Oscar Nabulindo join the same force, was welcomed by many who termed it as wise, accusing Amani National Congress (ANC) leader Musalya Mudavadi’s decision to join the United Democratic Alliance (UDA) as a betrayal.
Marende likened Mudavadi’s move to that of a suicide bomber, adding that he did not chose the right company.
The two; Okong’o and Nabulindo ditched ANC after the party teamed up with UDA, accusing Mudavadi of betraying the western region.
“We shall not follow you,” Wamalwa said to Mudavadi.
The move came barely an hour after UDA also welcomed former Citizen TV presenter Hussein Mohamed as their head of communication on Tuesday.
Francis Atwoli, the Secretary General of the Central Organization of Trade Unions (COTU) on his part said politicians who support UDA will face definite defeat in the coming August polls.
