Nominated Senator Elizabeth Ongoro Decamps from ODM

April 5, 2017

Nominated Senator Elizabeth Ongoro has defected from the Orange Democratic Party citing frustration from the opposition party.

Ongoro’s decision comes a day after 400  aspirants were handed direct tickets to contest in the August General Election.

She was barred from contesting for Ruaraka parliamentary seat in an apparent disciplinary action after her supporters clashed with those of area MP TJ Kajwang in Mathare last month, leaving two people dead.

According to sources, Ongoro turned down offers to vie for woman representative or senator.

She accused ODM of denying her the chance to exercise her democratic right to seek the Ruaraka MP seat.

The legislator is expected to announce her new party under which she will vie for MP.

She will reportedly join a party in the National Super Alliance.

On twitter, she was a trending topic as users shared their reactions to the news expected to deal ODM a big blow as her mobilisation skills had turned her into an asset for the party.
