ODM Secretary General Ababu Namwamba is expected to join Jubilee Party after reaching agreement with top leadership in the ruling coalition.

Though it’s not exactly known when he will announce his political stand, the Budalangi MP has been holding secret meetings with Deputy President William Ruto and it’s believed the two have reached an agreement.

Sources within the government say Ababu will be a key figure during the campaigns in Western Kenya as he will be used alongside Eugene Wamalwa to campaign for Jubilee Party in 2017 general elections.

Though the President is a bit worried that the two might not create an impact, the ruling party is hoping that Musalia Mudavadi will contest for presidency in 2017 so as to spoil for Raila.There are all indications Mudavadi will contest for the seat; he is expected to register a new party before Easter Holiday.

Opposition leader Raila Odinga is aware about Namwamba’s political maneuvers and has given the Budalangi MP a cold shoulder in most occasions.Raila’s allies have indicated the CORD leader is searching for a suitable replacement for Ababu Namwamba.He is buying time to monitor Jubilee Party strategies and identify someone who is loyal.

Sources within Orange House say Raila is keen to pick someone from Luo Nyanza to replace Namwamba.
