Tom Ojienda Expulsion from ODM.
On September 6th, 2023, Tom Ojienda, among the other five party members, was expelled for supporting the opposition party UDA.

This was after he reported that he would not participate in any Azimios protest rallies, which he claimed would derail the realization of development projects in the country and his area.

He said he had no apologies for the steps he had taken, facing allegations of violation of article 11(1) (e) of the party constitution and section 14 A of the Political Parties Act 2011, openly associating with activities of a rival political party went against the lawful decision made by the party organs.
