The Secretary-General of Raila’s ODM Party, Edwin Sifuna, has promised to hand Kakamega Senator Cleophas Malala a direct ticket should Amani National Congress expel him.

The Musalia Mudavadi-led ANC Party suspended Mr. Malala from the party on Friday for supporting the ODM candidate Bernard Imran Okoth in the November 7 Kibra by-election.

On Sunday, ODM Secretary-General Edwin Sifuna said, while speaking during a fundraiser at Cheptulu Salvation Army in Vihiga County, that ODM had already prepared a direct ticket to hand to Mr Malala should Musalia’s Party expel him.

“Malala supported us in Kibra, ODM party will stand with him. ANC is pained after losing the by-election. They spent money and they are feeling the pinch. As the ODM secretary-general, I want to say that should they (ANC) oust you, we shall receive you,” Mr Sifuna told the Kakamega senator.

Mr Malala, who expressed his willingness to receive the ticket, said he was not afraid of a by-election. He accused the ANC leader Musalia Mudavadi of targeting him with a similar strategy as to what Osotsi went through and eventually emerged victorious.

According to Malala, he supported Mr Okoth to comfort him after losing his brother, Ken Okoth in July. He noted that the family needed support after losing one of them and wondered why his ANC Party sponsored a candidate in Kibra. The same candidate Malala alleged to be William Ruto’s side project after Mariga.

The event was also attended by Mr Malala and nominated MP Godfrey Osotsi, who has faced a similar fate in the ANC party. Osotsi asked the Kakamega senator to defy any summons by ANC Musalia’s party that a disciplinary committee is not properly constituted.
