The Orange Democratic Movement has launched investigations into the corruption allegations against its members in the Vihiga County Assembly.
In a statement, ODM established a five member committee to investigate the allegations.
The Task Force headed by former Kanduyi MP Alfred Khang’ati and members Pamela Kimwele, Julius Okara, Elizabeth Anziya and Dominic Sibocha will hold sittings in Vihiga County to establish the corruption allegations and report back in ten days.
In a statement signed by Secretary General Ababu Namwamba the party says it has taken the measure to reinforce its position on zero tolerance to corruption.
‘The decision to form the Task Force is basically to reinforce our position on zero tolerance to corruption and also emphasize our commitment to supporting and defending Devolution,” said Namwamba in the statement.
Quoting the German-Born-American Political Scientist Henry Alfred Kissinger words “Corrupt politicians make the other ten percent look bad,” Namwamba said ODM was taking a tough stance on corruption on its members.
Two years ago, ODM formed a Task Force to establish the root-cause of disharmony among the Members of County Assembly (MCAs).
ODM took the measure after receiving complaints of “serious financial impropriety in the Vihiga County Assembly.”
