Budalang’i MP Ababu Namwamba was confronted by angry voters in Mombasa who accused him of betraying the change movement and joining Uhuru Jubilee party.
The voters mostly youths demanded that Ababu clarify his stand on support for the corrupt Jubilee regime, some blocking his exit path.
The MP had just come out of a church service at Glory Worship Center at Bangla, Jomvu constituency.
The youths, about 70 in number who appeared infuriated, shouted that the legislator should not have ditched Opposition.
The legislator resigned from the ODM secretary general post in June and later relaunched the Labour Party of Kenya that is aligned to Jubilee party.
It took the intervention of Labour Party of Kenya organising secretary Peter Ole Musei to cool them off.
But Namwamba later told local reporters that the youths, who he described as ‘good boys’, were airing their ‘genuine grievances’.
“Would they have allowed me to address them if they had ill-intentions? These are people who saw a perfect avenue to have their serious grievance sorted,” he said.
He said if the youths were rowdy as purported, his car windows would have been smashed.
