Ababu Namwamba’s much-hyped third political force suffered a setback when two MPs abandoned him for other political outfits.
Source close to the Budalang’i MP said his political activities slowed down following moves by Sirisia MP John Waluke and his Funyula counter part Paul Otuoma that led DP Ruto to stop bankrolling them.
It had been said the three of them were behind the ‘mulembe consciousness’ movement aimed at uniting Western residents and securing their place in politics.
Waluke said he had officially crossed over to the ruling coalition ahead of Jubilee Party’s launch, for his people’s benefit.
Hon Walukhe had resigned from his position as the party’s chairman for the county and is a long time business associate of DP Ruto (NCPB Saga)
“My constituency has been marginalised by former regimes and my people are still living in abject poverty,” he said on Tuesday.
He spoke at Kibeu Primary School during the disbursement of Sh57 million National Government Constituency Development Fund.
The MP is among several Cord politicians who will attend Jubilee Party’s official launch at Safaricom Stadium Kasarani, Nairobi, on Saturday.

Ababu is said to be financial distress and hardly finance his activities, much of the alleged eurobond was spent on completing his house in Karen and private foreign trips. The little that is left is for his security given the fact that Jubilee duo are tricky
Ababu is also said to be mad that his ally and sponsor DP Ruto had endorsed CS Eugene Wamalwa instead of himself knowing very well that he cannot make it in Budalangi since its an ODM stronghold.
