"The President is my friend" - MP Titus Khamala refutes claims he's ditching ODM after State House visit
- Rumours were rife that Lurambi MP Titus Khamala and two of his colleagues were on their way out of Azimio-One Kenya Coalution, after a meeting with President William Ruto at State House.
- The lawmaker has vehemently refuted those rumours, asserting that he is intact in Raila Odinga's ODM Party.
Rumours were rife that President Ruto was luring Azimio La Umoja One Kenya Coalition MPs, especially after MP Khamala led others in a visit to State House on Friday, November 18.
But the cheerful MP has set the record straight, asserting that he is intact in the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM), and that his contract with the Raila Odinga-led party expires in 2027.
"Defecting is a thing of the past. I am faithful to my political party, ODM, up until 2027," he said.
The President is my friend...
He revealed that the purpose of his visit to State House was to push for infrastructure development in his constituency.

"The President is my friend. Common sense dictates that if the President is your friend and the roads are impassable, you give him a call. Would we have slacked again now, we would have lost it because budget making is happening around this time," said the lawmaker.
Kakamega governor Fernandes Barasa lauded him for taking initiative to inform President Ruto of his voters' plight.
Other MPs who were in the meeting were Bernard Shinali (Ikolomani) and Emmanuel Wangwe (Navakholo).
