Expelled Khalwale 'not in CORD'

28 October 2014, 12:53 William Korir

Nairobi - Kakamega Senator Bonny Khalwale says he is not a member of the CORD coalition but is working with them.

Khalwale has been expelled by his parent party the Amani National Congress ANC, formerly the United Democratic Front UDF for perceived allegiance to the CORD coalition over the past one year.

He and nominated Senator Martha Wangari as well as other leaders were expelled Monday in a special General Assembly in Nairobi Monday.

Khalwale though, says he is not a member of the CORD coalition but says that he is working with them to push agenda in the Senate.

" I am not a member of CORD. That I have said previously," he said.

" As has been the norm, MPs from our coalition have been working with the Jubilee coalition and thus we Senators chose to work with CORD in our house to push national agenda," he added.

Khalwale also says that he will not stop working with CORD seeing as he feels that they are pushing agenda that is right for the country.

" What we are doing is pushing agenda that will drive the country forward. I will not hesitate to take sides with forward thinking ideas, he said of the push for a referendum.

Amani leader Musalia Mudavadi said Monday that there was no space in the party for those with dissenting opinions.

" We acknowledge that there are times we will have different opinions but we cannot differ on everything. That is not acceptable and is a sign of dissent, he said.

It is not yet clear if the party will push for the expulsion of leaders at the registrar of political parties or if internal solutions will be sought for the likes of Khalwale and company.
