Nairobi - National Assembly members allied to the Coalition of Reforms and Democracy (CORD) have warned their political opponents against plotting ill plans to intimidate the opposition by targeting its co-principles.
The coalition's MP's led by Kanduyi legislator, Hon. Wafula Wamunyinyi said that they have noted desperate attempts by "known political detractors" to persist with their ill ways of frustrating the opposition's leadership.
"We are fully aware of the desperate attempts by known political detractors to continue with their wicked machinations to frustrate the CORD leadership in general and Senator Wetang'ula in particular through legal and extra legal machinations," said Wamunyinyi.
"CORD will not sit down and watch as its leadership is wrecked by a people whose political relevance is past tense," he added.
Wamunyinyi affirmed that no amount of witch-hunt, intimidation or backstabbing will prevent the CORD leadership from pointing out the ills of enormous corruption and bad leadership bedeviling the nation under Jubilee government.
"Not even attempts to eliminate the leadership through attempted assassinations casually and comically dismissed as "billboard accidents" will stop CORD from exercising its democratic right of providing the checks and balances to the already failed Jubilee administration," said Wamunyinyi.
The Kanduyi MP was speaking at a press conference at Parliament building s in response to recent verdict delivered by the Kisumu Court of Appeal to the Bungoma Senator Moses Wetang'ula's reasons behind the nullification of his March 4, 2014 election.
Wamunyinyi called on Bungoma residents and the entire CORD supporters to remain calm noting that the Courts Friday verdict does not affect Wetang'ula's re-election as the Bungoma senator and the coalition's co-principal.
"We appeal to our supporters to be calm and treat the information being peddled around by our detractors with the contempt it deserves. Such misleading information is meant to unsettle and distract not only our leadership but also our supporters," noted Wamunyinyi.
He reaffirmed the the opposition coalition is committed to provide innovative, alternative, effective and pragmatic solutions to the challenges facing the citizens.
