Ex-Budalangi MP Ababu Namwamba has declined an appointment as a Kenya Wildlife Service Board member saying it is beneath his status, Venas.co.ke reports.
According to the online news outlet, the miffed Ababu demanded for a “CS position or any equivalent’’.
He rubbished the appointment saying the least he can go for is an ambassadorial position. It is alleged that the outspoken ex-MP reminded the powers that be within Jubilee that he had a stake in the Party.

Ababu has been lobbying for a Cabinet slot after losing his seat to ODM Raphael Wanjala. The ambitious former MP joined Uhuru Kenyatta’s Jubilee Party and played a major role in popularizing the party in the Western region.
Although we are able to verify the reports independently, Ababu has been keen to be awarded with a cabinet slot to remain politically relevant.
