Kalonzo defends Wetan'gula, Nyenze

21 April 2014, 19:09 William Korir

Nairobi - CORD principal Kalonzo Musyoka has defended the performances of Moses Wetang'ula and David Nyenze in their roles in the senate and national assembly respectively.

The two have been on the spotlight for their roles as minority leaders in the respective houses having been blamed for the toothless nature of the opposition.

There have been questions asked especially of Nyenze, with rumours of his apparent sacking doing the rounds.

Leaders from the Wiper Democratic Movement from which Nyenze hails have already come out to state their displeasure at the rumours of Nyanze's sacking.

And in a plot to calm his party members down as well as protect the coalition from further damaging rumours, Kalonzo, who is also the Wiper party leader says that he does not expect to see either of them leave their positions.

" As Cord coalition we have been meeting when there is any matter arising whether in Parliament or at the Senate and we have dealt with it decisively, so I want to assure Kenyans the so-called opposition limbo is just a myth,” Mr Musyoka said in a press statement Monday.

He also added that he was personally satisfied with the job being done by the two leaders and insisted that if there is anything to add, the coalition will liase personally with them.

" We are happy with the job done by the two and fully support them in their continued roles, he added.

CORD has insistently failed to drive the opposition agenda in the two houses, with many of their propositions falling to the well numbered Jubilee coalition but Kalonzo insisted that all is fine at the party.

" The coalition is in good hands and will continue to drive the agenda of the opposition as has been, he added.
