Raila will Thursday, February 23, receive high profile members of the Jubilee Party from Narok county who will be defecting to ODM.

In a statement, the ODM said the party leader will receive the members at his Capitol Hill offices.

This comes hours after more Jubilee Party members defected to the Kenya African National Union (KANU) party on Wednesday, February 22.

The defectors were received by KANU chairman Gideon Moi.

On Tuesday, February 21, Jubilee Party suffered another blow when close to 100 members from Embu county defected to the Party of National Unity (PNU).

The members were received by PNU chairman Peter Munya.

Uhuru suffers more loss.

The mass defections experienced in Jubilee prompted the party to speak on Wednesday, February 22.

Party secretariat head Raphael Tuju warned defectors that they will still meet Jubilee aspirants in the ballot.

"Those running away from Jubilee to other parties are doing so at their own peril. We will field Jubilee candidates in all the areas. We have not signed any pact with any political party or coalition," Tuju said.
