“I came here because I am a member of ODM, a member of Azimio and when we walked in there are boys who blocked me and said I would not come in after that I was allowed in. when Baba walked in one of his close security asked me to walk out and I walked out.

“I can’t regret meeting the President because I had gone there in my own capacity and it’s because he had called me for development issues. I still repeat I feel bad that I can’t attend the meeting when Baba is here and you know very well what I have done for the party myself, the journey we have been and I am happy it has taken a different turn, “said Jalang’o.

“There is no apology about meeting the President. I went there for development, you don’t apologize when you have gone and you have been called. I might be not be the first person to be kicked out of the party, neither will I be the last person, ”Jalang’o added.

Drama as Jalang’o is Blocked From Azimio Retreat Over State House Visit

Lang’ata MP Phelix Odiwuor alias Jalang’o had a rough time on Thursday morning while trying to access Azimio la Umoja Parliamentary Group (PG) meeting in Machakos.

Video seen by Nairobi Leo showed that the first-term MP had arrived at the venue only to be blocked by a group of men from accessing the venue.

The agitated group of men was heard telling him to go to State House where he met President William Ruto on Tuesday together with 8 other ODM MPs from Luo Nyanza.

It took the intervention of Embakasi East MP Babu Owino and Suna East Counterpart Junet Mohamed to finally have Jalang’o allowed into the meeting.

On Wednesday, Jalang’o said that he is still loyal to ODM leader Raila Odinga despite visiting State House.

The first-term MP said he has been part of the Azimio rallies and will continue mobilising crowds for the upcoming rallies beginning including one in Machakos county this weekend.

“I will be there because now that is politics. We have to learn how to differentiate politics and development,” he said.

The MP clarified that he only went to State House following the invite of President William Ruto after it was made clear in advance that the agenda would be purely on development.

“What if for political reasons the president who holds the key to these development says okay guys don’t go there (Azimio rallies)?” he was asked.
