Mungatana dismisses Raila-Kalonzo-Wetangula pact

07 December 2012, 14:17 Alloys Musyoka

Garsen Member of Parliament Danson Mungatana has dismissed the Coalition between Prime minister Raila Odinga, Vice President Kalonzo Musyoka and Moses Wetangula saying it has nothing to offer Kenyans.

He termed the Coalition Reforms and Democracy (CORD) as plot by political rejects to continue being in power.

"What is new in those three politicians who have been in power for long and served not Kenyans they just want to remain in power," he said.

Mungatana made the remarks at Sala and Bangale areas within Tana North district, Tana River County during a campaign rally to woe voters to elect him for the governor post.

He said the coalition has nothing to do with Kenyans since it will not show how it will bring anything on the table, and called on Kenyans to shun it.

The Garsen MP expressed optimism that coalition between Deputy Prime minister Uhuru Kenyatta of TNA, Eldoret North MP William Ruto of URP and Deputy Prime Minister Musalia Mudavadi of UDF will win in the coming general election.

He said the coalition brings new face, idea and new ideals for Kenyans urging Kenyans to support it vehemently come general election 2013.

"Coalition between TNA, UDF and URP is the thing Kenyans want and if they really need changes in this country let them support this coalition," said Mungatana.

Mungatana is vying for the governor post in Tana River county where he is expected to face his Galole MP counterpart Dhadho Godhana, former Galole MP Mohamed Galgalo and former Saudi Arabia ambassador to Kenya Hussein Dado in the ballot box come general election.
The former Narc general secretary has been seeking support from elders of Pokomo communities and Wardei as his opponents remain silent.

Sources have indicated that talks by Pokomo Council of Elders (Gasa) to anoint one of their own for the two most powerful seats in the County – Senator and Governor – hit a stone forcing the two  Dhadho and Mungatana, who are from the community to face each other in the ballot box.

Elsewhere, talks by elders from the pastoral communities are said to have floated, meaning that Molu Shambaro and Hussein Dado will meet in the ballot box too.

The vast Tana river county is now returning to normalcy and political temperature beginning to rise as politicians go round seeking support for various positions.

Most of the aspirants have taken advantage of IDP camps where they have channeled their political dais.
