Ababu Will Ditch ODM At The Height Of 2017 Elections, As Reports Emerge He Was Given 10 Million By Uhuru (See Details)
This is a strategy that was used effectively during the Moi reign and Uhuru’s minders are using the same script to deflect any chances of Raila ascending to the Presidency. According to the Citizen Weekly magazine, ODM is aware of the plot by Jubilee and is countering by calling grassroots elections that will in effect lead to national polls with the intention of bundling Ababu from the party.
Ababu has consistently denied being a Jubilee mole but political analyst opine that the abrasive MP is looking for an exit strategy to join Jubilee. The legislator is said to be a close ally of Ruto and has been seen as leading Amani Coalition MPs to join Jubilee.

After being kicked out as the Public Account Parliament over corruption allegations, the MP assumed the leadership of Western Parliamentary Caucus. This is the same group that visited the Uhuru at State House to plead with him to rescue Mumias Sugar Company.
Ababu is reported to have been given Sh10 million to coordinate the highly publicised visit by President Uhuru at Mumias. He was given the status of a celebrity as he heaped praises on Uhuru and Ruto at every opportunity he was given.
The Budalangi MP was treated like the defacto leader of Western Kenya by the President and his deputy. Other leaders present but played second fiddle to Ababu are:
Ford Kenya leader Moses Wetang’ula, Amani coalition leader Musalia Mudavadi, cabinet secretary Eugene Wamalwa, governors Kenneth Lusaka of Bungoma, Wycliffe Oparanya, Kakamega and prominent area senators Bonny Khalwale and Amos Wako of Kakamega and Busia respectively.
