Drama ensued on Thursday February 9, 2023 when Lang’ata MP Pelix Oduwour alias Jalang’o was denied entry into Azimio la Umoja-One Kenya coalition MPs’ retreat in Machakos.
In a video that has since gone viral, a group of men is seen trying to block Jalang’o from gaining access to the hall where Raila Odinga-led Azimio is holding a Parliamentary Group meeting.
Jalango’s entourage attempted to force their way into the venue leading to a commotion as those trying to block him are heard telling him to go to State House.
Embakasi East MP Babu Owino and his Suna East counterpart Junet Mohamed took the intervention for the youthful lawmaker to gain access to the hall.
This is after the first term lawmaker on Tuesday attended a meeting at State House together with 8 other ODM MPs.
The meeting was chaired by President William Ruto and his deputy Rigathi Gachagua.
However, Jalang’o defended himself noting that he had only attended the State House meeting for development purposes only.
He said he had gone to State House to make a follow up on the promises made by President Ruto while on his tour of the Nyanza region last month.
