Uriri MP Mark Nyamita has said he is still considering if he can attend the Friday meeting in Migori town by opposition leader Raila Odinga.

Speaking to Migori News on Thursday, the legislator said currently he is held up in parliament committee meetings to vet NG-CDF board members.

On Friday visit, Nyamita said he will work on ways to attend “if I get time right now I am in a parliamentary committee meeting and if I finish on time I will make it.”

On Wednesday, Nyamita alongside his Rongo counterpart Paul Abuor were given a week to apologise for working with government and fined Sh1m payable in sixty days.

The two legislators said they are yet to get official communication and promised they will discus the matter with their political base before making any decision.

On Wednesday the Orange Democratic Movement party fined Uriri MP Mark Nyamita and his Rongo counterpart Paul Abuor Sh1million each for working with President William Ruto and supporting the finance bill.

The two are among other rebel elected leaders from the party who also faced allegations of violation of Article 11 (1) (e) of the party constitution and section 14A of the Political Parties Act 2011 by openly associating with and supporting activities of a rival political party and opposed lawful decisions/resolutions made by the party organs.

ODM in a statement said the two legislators should “offer written apology to the party within seven days. The two will be required to pay a fine of Ksh. 1 million each within sixty days.”

On Friday Odinga is expected to be in the county in a move to starve off President William Ruto from gaining political ground in the cosmopolitan county after managing to sway the two ODM legislators and six MCAs to rebel.

Raila will be first hosted by Suna West MP Peter Masara in his home in Migori town before heading to a closed door meeting with county ODM leaders, elders, professionals and church leaders at Maranatha Hall within the town.

He is later expected to address a rally in Migori town.
