After being recognized as a Budalangi resident a week ago by his successor Hon Raphael Wanjala, Hon Ababu Namwamba has now landed a new job in the government.
In the new cabinet secretaries reshuffle that has been done by the government, the former Budalangi MP has been appointed as the new cabinet secretary for the ministry of Sports, Culture and Arts.
Namwamba, who is also a Labor Party leader played a big a role in spearheading President Uhuru Kenyatta’s re-election in western region.
The former ODM secretary general ditched to Labor Party last year 2016 after claiming to have been betrayed by ODM party leader Raila Odinga.
He started supporting President Kenyatta’s re-election thereafter, a move that contributed to him losing his seat to Hon Raphael Wanjala.
