Jubilee leaders in Nakuru condemn CORD MPs
06 September 2013, 17:36
A cross section of leaders affiliated to the Jubilee coalition from Nakuru County have condemned CORD MPs for walking out of Parliament on Thursday.
The leaders said that it was a shameful act displayed by the legislators of the opposition party.
They added that the MPs who stormed out of parliament did not deserve to hold their positions since they were not representing the views of the electorates.
The chairman of PNU in Nakuru County, John Kamama, on Friday said that two Jubilee leaders facing trial at The Hague were unfairly framed by those who were opposing them.
“It is shameful for our colleagues in the CORD coalition to be seen supporting the ICC because our leaders did not commit any of the criminal charges that are facing,” he said.
He further said that the opposition leaders should not use the ICC cases to get into power since the electorates turned them down during the polls day.
“Opposition leaders ought to know that there is no shot cut into power and we will continue supporting the withdrawal of Kenya from the ICC,” he said.
Kamama observed that the initiative to pull Kenya out of the ICC was about the independence of Kenya and not selfish clamor as Cord claim.
The leaders also pointed that there will be no power vacuum at the helm of the government when President Uhuru Kenyatta and his Deputy leaves for Hague.
They also urged the public to foster peace by desisting from making inflammatory remarks in public in regard to the ICC.
