ODM nominated MP Isaac Mwaura.

Nairobi, Kenya: Nominated Member of Parliament for Special Interest Groups Isaac Mwaura on Friday ditched his sponsoring party ODM for Uhuru Kenyatta’s JAP.

In a statement, he said he has notified Party Leader Rt.Hon. Raila Odinga of his decision to work closely with President Uhuru Kenyatta.

“This is after extensive consultation with the people of Ruiru and as they say, all politics is local,” he said.

“I remain most grateful and honoured for the special consideration by my Party Leader to nominate me to represent special interests in Parliament and also having served in his office as Advisor on special interest groups,” said Mwaura in his departure note.

The nominated legislature further thanked President Uhuru for integrating disadvantaged groups in national agenda and resources allocation.

Mwaura is said to be eyeing Ruiru Parliamentary seat in the forth- coming 2017 general election.
