Jubilee MPs dismiss 2017 vote rigging claims

22 April 2014, 09:10 Joseph Njung’eh

Nyeri - A section of Jubilee MPs have dismissed claims that the proposed new registration of persons is a plot to rig the 2017 general election.

The MPs faulted the sentiments by some leaders affiliated to CORD coalition that the government is planning to rig next elections through the new registration plan.

Led by Kikuyu MP, Kimani Ichung’wa, the MPs noted that the new registration exercise was initiated during the grand coalition government through the Ministry of Immigration and Registration of Persons which was then under Otieno Kajwang’, now a CORD Senator.

Ichung’wa further observed that the former government registered foreigners, something that has contributed to high crime rates being experienced in the country.

Kajiado East MP, Peris Tobiko said that the Jubilee government is committed to development matters and not on future elections.

CORD leaders, led by Senators Moses Wetangula and Anyang Nyong’o, had said the proposed fresh registration of persons has not been budgeted for.

The opposition leaders questioned why the government was keen on pushing for a project which neither houses of Parliament had discussed terming it as a ploy for corruption.

The TNA MPs made the remarks in Othaya during Mary Wambui’s campaign rally.

They urged the residents to vote for Wambui as their Member of Parliament stating that the other aspirants are from the opposition parties.

Other MPs who accompanied Wambui included Mburu Kahagara (Lari), Alice Ngang’a (Thika town) and Kimani Ngunjiri (Bahati).
