Borrow Jubilee ideas of winning elections, MP tells CORD

26 October 2015, 13:10 Joseph Njung'eh

Nyeri - Tetu MP, Ndung’u Gethenji has urged the opposition to borrow ideas of winning elections from the ruling Jubilee coalition.

Gethenji claimed that the Coalition for Reforms and Democracy (CORD) was inciting public in order to get support.

Speaking at his constituency Sunday, the MP asked police to take action on politicians spreading hatred among communities and those making tribal remarks.

“We in Jubilee know how to attract public support. We know how to win elections. CORD should ask ideas from us instead of inciting public,” said Gethenji who is also chairman of Parliamentary Defence and Foreign Affairs committee.

He termed remarks made recently by Nairobi ODM party chairman, George Aladwa, as retrogressive and damaging to national cohesion and peace.

He asked Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) to investigate other politicians who had accompanied Aladwa to the rally in Kamukunji where he reportedly made offensive utterances.

“We should have zero tolerance to incitement and hate speech,” said Gethenji.

He further accused CORD of raising public tension by releasing data and statistics indicating that Kenya’s economy was retarding.

“The statement by CORD leader, Raila Odinga is more damaging to Kenya’s growth and development. His statistics contradict those published by the World Economic Outlook by International Monetary Fund (IMF) recently,” he said.

He observed that the government is attracting credibility from developed countries adding that there is influx of foreign investors.

Last week the CORD leader said Kenya’s economy was sinking as he asked President Uhuru Kenyatta “to wake up and report to duty.”

During a press briefing at Serena hotel Odinga said the Jubilee government was over borrowing and overspending.
