CORD government might never be, western MPs warn

05 May 2015, 11:57 David Wekesa

Bungoma - Four members of parliament from the western region have dismissed the possibility of CORD clinching power in the next elections, and urged local residents to work with the Jubilee government.

Speaking on Sunday at Chebosi Salvation Army, Mumias East MP Ben Washiali, Navakholo MP Emmanuel Wangwe, Nambale MP John Bunyasi and Webuye west MP Dan Wanyama called on the residents not to miss out the goodies in the government.

Washiali said it is only by supporting the government of the day that they can be guaranteed of development in the region rather  than waiting for a CORD government that might never be.

“Let nobody lie to you to wait for a government that might never come. Let's join hands with the Jubilee government and claim our position,” said Washiali.

Washilai urged other Luhya leaders who are still supporting the CORD coalition to rethink their stand for the sake of development in the region.

Wangwe said the Jubilee administration had shown commitment in supporting the region, pointing out the recent appointments of people from the region by the President.

“Though we have not got enough, we are sure that the Jubilee administration is committed in working with the Luhya community," said Wangwe.

Webuye west MP, Dan Wanyama urged those thinking that CORD will win the next general election to stop dreaming, saying President Uhuru Kenyatta will easily recapture the seat.

“Let's not waste time. Let's instead use that energy in bargaining for development in our region,” he said.

Wanyama said that they had already started talks to ensure that the region is united ahead of the next elections.

Bungoma Governor, Kenneth Lusaka who was present, said that governors from the region will be meeting next week in TransNzoia to chart the way forward for the region, and urged residents to support the Jubilee government.
