Imekuwa tena siwezi husika kwa chochote ambacho kinahusu chama. Sasa hivi, nimetolewa katika communications channels zote za chama. So, siwezi jua chochote ambacho kinaendea sitaelezwa na pia sitajua. (At the moment, I have been removed from all the ODM communications channels. I am in total darkness since I don’t know what is happening

Wengi wananiona kama msaliti. Kwa saa hizi mimi siwezi hata mkaribia Raila. Sina hata nafasi ya kuketi na yeye chini kwa sababu ya wale watu wako karibu a yeye. Sijamsalti mtu yeyote. Kilicho kwa sasa ni kwamba, siwezi enda mahali ambapo sihitajiki. (Many view me as a betrayer. I haven’t gotten any chance to engage with Raila. But I have not betrayed anyone,)” Jalang’o added.
