Controversial paralegal clerk and aspiring MCA Kemera Ward Mr Vincent Omao has decamped Orange Democratic Movement (ODM), one of Africa's largest parties.
Omao, one of the legal brains behind Nyamira Governor John Nyagarama's woes in appointment of Chief Officers and Public Service Board, has claimed that there is no value in supporting ODM for 15 years despite being shortchanged often.
In an official statement making rounds on social media, Mr Omao Mariita says he had decamped to look for a new political outfit that will fit his interests.
"I tried hand in politics in 2013 but former North Mugirango MP Joseph Kiangoi made sure I don't clinch the ODM ticket during the nominations," said Omao
A frustrated Omao says it was a tough decision to make but he had to follow his heart.
''Today, I formally quit my allegiance with ODM and it's candidates. Though it's a bitter decision to make. I have to because for 15years, I have supported the party I haven't been able to bargain for my people," added Omao
Earlier, veteran lawyer David Ombego who is eyeing Kitutu Masaba parliamentary seat had asked Mr Omao to stay put as the party works out on ways of addressing the matter. He even promised to cut short his political dream to see Omao get back to ODM
After the loses in Ugenya and Embakasi South parliamentary races, ODM seems to be on the loosing end after most grassroot supporters threatened to shift to DP Ruto's TangaTanga movement.
