04 February 2015, 10:35
Nyahururu - CORD leader Raila Odinga was Tuesday told to stop playing political antics by saying he would testify for Deputy President William Ruto at the ICC.
Laikipia Jubilee Alliance Party (JAP) interim secretary, Jane Ndiga said ODM was not accused at the ICC and that Raila was only making weird statements.
Ndiga was speaking in Nyahururu town during a press conference to unveil Laikipia county JAP interim leaders.
“It’s not ODM that is being accused and so Raila should instead be focusing on the formation of the African court of justice,” Ndiga said.
The interim leaders who were unveiled during the occasion include; Peter Ngugi Ndonyo (Chairman), John Barno (Vice Chairman), Michael Kabochi (Organizing Secretary) and Esther Wanjiru (Party delegate).
The interim chairman, Peter Ngugi Ndonyo said that the formation of JAP would promote unity in the multi-cultural region and enable them to play oversight role to the current leaders of Laikipia County.
Ndonyo hailed President Uhuru and his Deputy William Ruto’s decision to merge TNA and URP Parties saying their bold decision will enhance national unity and ease the administration process of the country.
The interim leaders said that the case facing the Deputy President at The Hague should be terminated since there is no substantial evidence against him, so he can join the Head of State in spearheading national development.

They praised the Jubilee Government for opening up a platform for small parties all over the country to merge under one national leadership.
They at the same time urged other parties to join JAP adding that the party is fully dedicated to promote peace and unity among the people of Laikipia County.
The interim officials faulted those opposed to the merger of TNA and URP for claims that it would kill democracy, arguing that the objective of the party was to enhance unity and democracy in the country.
The leaders said they were ready to work with other leaders in the county to ensure that the tax payer’s money is well spent and that development takes place.
