Ababu Namwamba stopped from leading Labour Party

The Political Parties Dispute Tribunal has dealt a blow to Budalang’i MP Ababu Namwamba’s bid to lead the Labour Party of Kenya.

The tribunal on Monday restrained him from acting as a member and leader of the party.


This follows an application my Mr John Barasa Makokha, on behalf of the LPK, asking the tribunal to bar Mr Namwamba from transacting business on behalf of the party.

Mr Makokha had sworn an affidavit with the tribunal on the matter on January 27.

On that day, the tribunal led by Kyalo Mbobu and Milly Odongo ordered that: “in order to avoid confusion in the affairs of the party, an interim order is hereby issued to restrain the respondent herein, by her servants, agents, from acting or purporting to act or representing and holding himself as member and party leader of the Labour Party of Kenya pending the hearing and determination of the application inter parties.”
