Lang’ata Member of Parliament Felix Odiwuor, alias Jalang’o  has chosen a dignified response after his recent expulsion from the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party.


Jalang’o took to his Instagram page to share his thoughts on the matter. He responded with a Bible verse, accompanied by a symbolic image of himself carrying an evidence box to court during the opposition Azimio la Umoja One Kenya coalition party’s presidential election petition.


His message read, “No trial is too heavy to lift! No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation, he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it. Corinthians 10:13.”


In a recent announcement, the National Executive Committee (NEC) of the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party, led by Raila Odinga and National Chairman John Mbadi, convened to address the conduct of its members. Their actions were based on a report from the disciplinary committee.


Among those facing expulsion from ODM were five members, including Jalang’o. They were alleged to have violated the party Constitution and the Political Parties Act 2011 by openly supporting a rival political group and opposing the party’s lawful decisions.


The other members include, Members of Parliament Elisha Odhiambo, Gideon Ochanda, Caroli Omondi, and Kisumu Senator Tom Ojienda.


Nairobi Woman Representative Esther Passaris, on the other hand, faced reprimand for her defiance of the party’s stance on the Finance Bill 2023. She has been instructed to issue a written apology to the party within seven days and is required to pay a fine of Ksh.250,000 within 60 days.


Furthermore, ODM decided to revoke the nominations of four Members of the Kisumu County Assembly (MCAs); Caroline Opar, Kennedy Ajwang’, Peter Obaso, and Regina Kizito.
