CORD has no development agenda for Kenyans, says Bifwoli

03 June 2014, 14:02 Arap Yego

Bungoma - Former Bumula MP, Bifwoli Wakoli has ditched CORD Coalition and now supports the ruling coalition, Jubilee, following an announcement by the Principals of the opposition coalition that they will stage protest rallies across the county.

The former Lands Assistant Minister, who contested for the Bungoma Senatorial seat in the last polls on a Labour Party of Kenya ticket, said he has withdrawn his support for the coalition because he realized its leaders have no development agenda for Kenyans.

“I was a staunch supporter of CORD until  I listened at the coalition leaders in the much hyped rally at Uhuru Park Saturday. I listened keenly to all speakers at the rally and noted that they do not have the interest of Kenyans at heart. I cannot support a coalition that wants to keep the country on a permanent campaign mode,” said Bifwoli.

He said that what Kenyans need now is service delivery and a solution to their problems and not politicking, noting that CORD leadership should wait for 2017 to start campaigns.

“It's too early for CORD leaders to start talking of sending president Uhuru Kenyatta and his government home, when they have hardly been in office for a year. I too was floored in the last elections but I have let the person who defeated me Senator Moses Wetang’ula to work,” he said.

“They should let Kenyans decide in 2017. In fact, they should not be so hard on the government now. They should let it fail they use it as a campaign agenda in the general elections,” said the maverick former legislator.

He asked the CORD Coalition not to hold their nationwide rallies in Bungoma, noting that the residents and majority of the county leadership have agreed to work with the Jubilee government for the sake of the region's development.

“We have asked the president during his recent visit to Bungoma to develop key roads for us, build for us factories and give Kibabii University its own charter and we don't now want any disruptions," the former Lands assistant minister said at the Bungoma County Madaraka Day Celebrations at Kanduyi Stadium.
