Retired politician and former Westlands Mp,Fred Gumo,dispensed with decorum and stridently tore into Nyanza politicians for demonstrating intolerance to dissent.
This comes in the wake of a cornucopia of criticism touched off by Ababu’s attack on Raila for lacking the moral authority to push for a referendum after failing to guarantee smooth party elections.
Perhaps an indication that western politicians were growing increasingly uncongenial to the dictatorial antics of Nyanza stalwarts,Gumo warned that failure to accommodate Namwamba could spark a western revolt.
”They should know they can also be kicked out,” the former legislator thundered.
In a bid to forestall a major fallout,ODM party leader downplayed any tensions within the party saying that the media was creating a wrong impression.Ababu who was present during the press briefing declined to speak.
