Is ODM reconsidering its National Executive Council (NEC) decision to kick out MPs Aisha Jumwa and Suleiman Dori?

A senior party official yesterday whispered to The Grapevine that the party may after all not kick out the rebel MPs.

The source said it would be difficult to marshal at least two-thirds of the National Governing Council that include all NEC members, elected MPs and governors.

"They will not be kicked out by the organ," said the official.

The insider said the decision by NEC was meant to send a warning that any party member was not immune to disciplinary actions and must toe the party line.
