At least half a dozen sources have reported it. Online publications and social media has been awash with rumours that the National Alliance (TNA) associated with Uhuru Kenyatta is wooing ODM MPs and pointmen in Nairobi and that former Makadara MP was due to defect anytime.
The Star went as far as reporting Hon Bishop Margaret Wanjiru would be among defectors to be received by TNA honchos at Serena Hotel on Thurday morning.
On facebook “The Truth Weekly Newspaper” revealed that ODM MP for Starehe Margaret Wanjiru would be announcing her defection from the party alongside former Makadara MP Reuben Ndolo at the same venue further enforcing the reports on the Star that alluded that TNA had already contacted ODM Nairobi Branch vice chairman Ibrahim Ahmed "Johnie" and Foreign Affairs assistant minister Richard Onyonka to join its ranks.
This blogger took it upon himself to confront the Hon Wanjiru and Hon Ndolo on twitter. While the latter is known to be active on social media, the former last updated her twitter account on August 2010.
Whilst no TNA press conference took place in Serena Hotel as earlier announced by The Star and “The Truth Weekly”, former Makadara MP has today confirmed he is a life member of ODM. The confirmation is in response to a twitter challenge from your truly as reproduced below.
Hon Bishop Margaret Wanjiru’s reponse via the same means is still awaited.
