CORD not sincere with Okoa Kenya initiative

27 April 2015, 12:51 Joseph Njung'eh

Nyeri - Kieni MP, Kanini Kega has said that the opposition coalition, CORD is not sincere with the just launched Okoa Kenya initiative.

Kanini said that CORD wants to create an electioneering mood in the country through campaigns for the draft.

Speaking over the weekend at his constituency, the MP alleged that the CORD leadership is taking advantage of the security situation to castigate government.

“The opposition wants to disrupt the government from its development agenda. They want us to play politics together and leave out development. It is well calculated strategy but they will fail,” he claimed.

“The content of that draft cannot hold water and is the reason why they have been postponing it for the last nine months,” he added.

Cord has postponed the Okoa Kenya launch twice, first in February when the government switched off mainstream TV channels in digital migration row, and again in April to honour the 148 people killed by Al Shabaab terrorists at Garissa University College.

Kanini explained that the government has been increasing County allocations every financial year and there was no reason to subject the country to a referendum when such issues can be discussed in the national assembly.

He said the Constitutional Implementation Commission (CIC) term draws to a close and thus there was need to wait for their report to identify the faults within the constitution.

While launching the Okoa Kenya drive, Cord’s committee of experts chairman, lawyer Paul Mwangi said the initiative is aimed at uniting Kenyans and to get rid of offensive clauses in the Constitution.
