7 Eastern Kenya CORD MPs shift to Jubilee

22 June 2016, 17:49 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - Seven Members of Parliament from Ukambani say no amount of intimidation will stop them from working with Jubilee administration for the sake of development.

The MPs who spoke at a meeting attended by Deputy President William Ruto said they will continue to work with the government in solving the challenges facing the people of Ukambani despite repeated censures from the CORD leadership.

Ruto has urged the Kamba community to support the government, saying they stood to benefit from Jubilee as opposed to the Coalition for Reforms and Democracy (CORD) that they are currently aligned to.

Speaking at Kasikeu Secondary School in Kilome Constituency, Makueni County on Wednesday, the Deputy President said the Opposition had no agenda for Kenyans.

“I wish to ask the people of Ukambani to forget what happened in 2013 and support Jubilee come 2017 elections. We know you supported them then but this time let us walk this road together,” said Ruto.

Ruto was accompanied by MPs Regina Ndambuki (Kilome), Joe Mutambo (Mwingi Central), John Munuve (Mwingi North), Munyao Kisoi (Mbooni), Rachel Nyamai (Kitui West), Richard Makenga (Kaiti), Dennis Waweru (Dagoretti) and former MPs Kalembe Ndile and Prof Philip Kaloki.

“What we want is development and not mere politicking. We are working with Jubilee for the sake of the development of our people,” said Mutambo.
