Orange Democratic Movement party leaders yesterday said they did not attend Deputy President William Ruto’s functions in South Nyanza because they were not invited.
ODM National Chairman and Suba South MP John Mbadi said the DP’s office instead chose to involve “former MPs without the peoples’ mandate”.
“It should be clear that Ruto did not invite us, the leaders. The only message I got was from the county commissioner on Friday, when the visit was to be on Monday. So I don’t know at what point he thought about these visits. I think it was an afterthought,” Mr Mbadi told the Nation on Tuesday.
