CORD stick with Nyenze, Midiwo despite house failures

Nairobi - The CORD coalition has decided against replacing its leadership team in Parliament despite persistent failure in key motions and lack of unity amongst affiliate parties.
The four top officials, Minority Leader Francis Nyenze, deputy Jakoyo Midiwo, Minority Whip Gideon Mung'aro and deputy Chris Wamalwa were retained in their current positions despite a clamour for them to be disposed with.
Among issues raised against them was the lack of unity and performance, with some noting that they were either lazy or did not care about the coalition in the house.
The persistent failure by the coalition in championing key bills in the house had been mentioned as one of the reasons for their replacement.
But after a three hour meeting in which their performance was discussed, it was agreed that the team will retain its place but with ultimatum's on performance.
" After deliberation the Cord team has agreed to retain its current leadership in the National Assembly.”
“ This followed a firm assurance by the three leaders that they will pull up their socks,” the statement said.
CORD principals Raila Odinga, Kalonzo Musyoka and Moses Wetang'ula were part of the team that deliberated on the matter.For the latest on national news, politics, sport, entertainment and more follow us on Twitter and like our Facebook page!
