Likoni Member of Parliament Mwahima Masoud Mwahima announced on Wednesday that he has defected from CORD and joined Jubilee.
Mwahima who has for many times been seen to leaning towards the government side said his decision was prompted by Jubilee Government’s bold move to solve the prolonged problem of land ownership at Waititu Land in his constituency.
Mwahima said CORD has become irrelevant and that it was only Jubilee government that can solve many problems facing his constituents and Kenyans in general.
However, he never said whether he will be seeking re-election after his defection from CORD.
Mwahima was elected as Likoni MP through an ODM ticket.
He will therefore have to write a letter to ODM and the Registrar of Political Parties to authenticate his defection in order to pave way for a by-election in his constituency.
