The Orange Democratic Party (ODM) on Thursday distanced itself from Homabay Woman Representative, Gladys Wanga’s statement opposing the recommended pay cuts by SRC.
The Raila Odinga led party says that it stands for prudent management of resources.

”Among those behind the statement were members of our Party. The Orange Democratic Movement wishes to categorically state that the position taken by those members do not represent our position as a Party nor that of the National Super Alliance of which we are affiliate.
We stand for equity and prudent management of public resources. We cannot therefore promote or be seen to promote wastage, avarice and inequities in the Kenyan society.
Our members in different leadership positions are highly encouraged to always attempt to mediate their personal interests with public good that constitutes the substructure of ODM ideology of Social Democracy.”
Ms Wanga on Wednesday said that legislators would not allow their salaries to be slashed and be ‘made beggars.’
Kiambu Woman Rep, Gathoni wa Muchomba and Mbita Mp Millie Odhiambo were of a similar opinion.
ODM’s Millie said she was richer before becoming an Mp while Gathoni said she wanted to be ‘honoured for who she was.’
President Uhuru Kenyatta, on Thursday while meeting with School Heads promised not to sign into law ‘Mps greed’ should he win the Supreme Court case.
He also asked Odinga to condemn those seeking to have their pays hiked.
