Former Shinyalu MP Justus Kizito has ditched Jubilee Party for ODM. He is expected to face off with the incumbent, Lisamula Anami, for the ODM ticket during the party primaries next month.

Mr Kizito said he made the decision because he felt more at home in ODM than Jubilee.

"In ODM I feel at home. I have worked with the ODM party leader before and have also been receiving advice from Governor Wycliffe Oparanya and Mombasa Governor Hassan Joho, unlike in Jubilee where I had no say," Kizito said, while dismissing claims that he was being used as a Jubilee mole.

He was received by Mr Oparanya, ODM's deputy party leader, over the weekend.
