Insecurity, corruption blight Jubilee government: CORD

24 April 2014, 14:34 William Korir

Nairobi - Insecurity and corruption have been mentioned by the opposition Coalition for Reform and Democracy CORD as the biggest ills of the Jubilee government.

According to the coalition, the government has badly failed to address the issues and thus stands accused of  the deaths of Kenyans as well as the continued leaking of public coffers.

Speaking in a press conference Thursday in Nairobi and led by principals Kalonzo Musyoka and Moses Wetangula, the coalition has called on the Jubilee coalition to shape up or prepare for increased pressure.

" The government has failed in securing the country as is evident with the high increase in insecurity as well as terror attacks, Kalonzo said.

" Following the continued tales of terror activities in the country and the lack of decisive government action, it is apparent that the government is unable to handle the topic of insecurity.

" They are clueless and lack the ability to do anything about the vice, he added.

On his part, Wetangula lambasted the government for the high wave of corruption cases in the country, blaming the state for allowing corrupt officers take up key governance roles.

" Its extremely idle that Jubilee is telling Kenyans that they are not performing well because CORD is not shouting at them. It’s a laughable matter. You do not have to shout about corruption in laptop tender, Railway deal, Anglo-leasing and others, he said.

Wetangula also bemoaned the tactic used by the government in handling insecurity, by using the ongoing terror swoops in the country.

He said that the ethnic profiling of Somalis in the country showed a serious lack of effort from the government in fighting terrorism.

" The government has failed to revamp the country's intelligence and has also failed to ensure that the right people are arrested and has resulted to ethnic profiling to do so, he added.

Kalonzo insisted that the coalition would do its best to put the government on toes to ensure increased delivery.

" We will not give them breathing space. We will push them to find solutions to the current problems, he added, saying the suggestion that a weak opposition was to blame for the government's poor performance was rubbish.
