The Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) has now kicked out Turkana Governor Josphat Nanok as the party Vice Chairman.
The decision was made during the party’s National Executive Council (NEC) meeting held in Nakuru on Thursday led by party leader Raila Odinga.
According to the party, the decision was arrived at unanimously by the NEC “following numerous public pronouncements that he has quit the ODM Party.”
Mr. Nanok, who also doubles up as the Council of Governors (COG) Chair, will now be replaced by Loima Member of Parliament Jeremiah Lomorukai.
The meeting was attended by, among others, party Chairman John Mbadi, Secretary General Edwin Sifuna, Siaya Senator James Orengo as well as Ugunja MP Opiyo Wandayi.
The party is expected to make a public statement from the NEC meeting on Friday.
