CORD not ready for 2017 elections, Ruto mocks

17 October 2015, 18:25 Joseph Njung'eh

Nairobi - Deputy President William Ruto has asserted that Coalition for Reforms and Democracy (CORD) can not be trusted with Kenya’s presidency.

Ruto said CORD is playing ‘guesswork politics’ saying they do not have a Presidential candidate for 2017 general elections.

“In Jubilee coalition we already know who will be our Presidential candidate and we also know our party. The opposition does not know who will lead them and in which party,” said Ruto.

He said move to resolve Jubilee affiliate parties was unstoppable despite dissenting voices.

“When Uhuru and I formed an alliance in 2013 we meant business. Our goal is to unite all Kenyans. Politics of tribalism have no space in the modern Kenya,” Ruto stated.

He further asked Kenyans to support the government’s development programs.

The Deputy President spoke over the weekend during his tour in Mathioya and Othaya constituencies.

He was accompanied by MPs Mary Wambui (Othaya), Clement Wambugu (Mathioya), Alice Wahome (Kandara), Irungu Kang’ata (Kiharu), Sabina Chege (Murang’a), Priscillah Nyokabi (Nyeri), Jane Machira (Laikipia), Kembi Gitura (Murang’a Senator), Nyeri deputy governor Samuel Wamathai and Murang’a governor Mwangi wa Iria.

The MPs said they were supporting Gatundu South MP, Moses Kuria’s confession on fixing and coaching witnesses on Ruto’s ICC case.

They asked members of the opposition to come out clear on Ruto’s case and make their confessions as Kuria has opened the way.
