Nakuru - CORD coalition is the worst government that Kenya never had, an ODM member of parliament has said.
Nakuru town west MP, Samuel Arama has said that things would have been worse in the country had the coalition won the 2013 general elections.
Arama said that corruption would have gone to uncontrollable levels in the public sector if the CORD leader, Raila Odinga was president.
“At times when I see the CORD leadership making a lot of noise about corruption, I just laugh because I know things would have been worse had they taken power. The corruption they are talking about would have been their normal thing and development to them would be a vocabulary,” said Arama.

Speaking Wednesday in Nakuru town, Arama said that CORD government would have been full of rhetoric and very little development.
“CORD is the worst government that this country never had and I think God knew what he was doing when he denied them power because this country would have been in a mess,” he said.
He added that CORD needs a total overhaul of its leadership and ideas if it ever dreams of ascending to power.
“I doubt if they still dream of getting to power, but if they do then they must ensure that they carry out an overhaul of its entire leadership as well as ideas because the country is tired of their daily rhetoric,” he said.
Arama was elected on an ODM party ticket.
