The ODM has suspended Kilifi North Member of Parliament Owen Baya over connections with DP William Ruto.

On Saturday, the party National Executive Council had decided to suspend the legislator over his current political moves.

Secretary-General Edwin Sifuna said the move came following a two-day meeting at Stoni Athi Resort in Athi River.

He said as a result of the discontinuing, the MP had also been discharged of his post as the party’s deputy organising secretary.

"Cognisant of the central role that the party's NEC plays in the management of the party and the need to maintain the cleanliness of its deliberations, the NEC resolved to suspend Hon. Owen Baya, the MP for Kilifi North from membership of this critical organ and from his position as the Deputy Organising Secretary given his recent utterances and conduct that have cast doubt on his commitment to this party and its objectives," Sifuna said.

On Wednesday, Baya was part of a mission of Coast MPs that accompanied Feisal Abdallah Bader, an aspirant for the Msambweni parliamentary seat, to meet Deputy President William Ruto at his Karen office.

The MP was in June last year questioned over provocation remarks he made. He had told residents to evict non-locals would acquire land in the region.
