Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) rebels from the Coast region have been cautioned against their unending attacks on the party and its leadership.
The team led by Malindi lawmaker Aisha Jumwa and her Kilifi North counterpart Owen Baya has apparently fallen out with the party in favour of Deputy President William Ruto.
They recently accused Mombasa Governor and Deputy Party leader Hassan Joho of undermining them over their opposition to the party policies.
However, another team allied to the governor has come out guns blazing against the leaders, noting that their attacks are aimed at justifying their political failure.
According to Likoni lawmaker Mishi Mboko and Teddy Mwambire of Ganze, the group should leave both Joho and Raila out of their issues and should not expect any response from them.
Mboko said that they are busy with matters of national importance, among them the government's Big 4 agenda, and have no time for idlers.
"They are not on the same level. Mr Joho is a national figure who enjoys the support of the whole country. He cannot lower himself to their level,” Mboko was quoted by the Nation.
Mwambire accused Jumwa of ungratefulness, claiming that Joho played an important role in her election but she is now repaying him with insults and accusations.
"What the rebel MPs are doing is what can be well referred to as the kicks of a dying horse. When the governor influenced her appointment to the post, she kept quiet. We expected her to come out publicly and tell the Coast people that the governor played a role,” she said.
