Raila Odinga to party defectors: Stop ‘political prostitution’
Former Prime Minister Raila Odinga has expressed displeasure with the recent shifts of allegiance by members of the Azimio la Umoja party that has seen some vowing to work with his rival President Wiliam Ruto.
Speaking during the Azimio Parliamentary Group meeting in Machakos, the party leader said it was unethical for members to defect from a party or coalition after getting a seat in government.
“Very cheap, unprincipled for a political party to say after the election you are now resigning and going to join the coalition that you ran against. That is political prostitution,” Raila said.
“On what basis did UDM resign to go to the other side, even before the speaker was elected.. What is now more attractive in Kenya kwanza than Azimio? Political prostitution must be condemned.”
