URP: Rutto eyeing Raila's running mate role in 2017

24 September 2014, 15:13 Samuel Kisika

Nairobi - Aldai MP, Cornelly Serem claims that the Bomet Governor, Isaac Rutto is pushing for Pesa Mashinani referendum so as to get Rift Valley's support as Raila Odinga's running mate in 2017.

Serem said Rutto's Pesa Mashinani referendum call has agenda similar to that of CORD and that there is no doubt the Council of Governor's chairman is secretly working with the opposition.

"Don't be cheated that there are two referendums in this country. The Pesa Mashinani and CORD's referendums are the same. Isaac Rutto's support for referendum is a manifestation of his interest in becoming Raila Odinga's running mate come 2017," said Serem.

He warned that the Jubilee coalition will take immediate action such as expelling leaders who are pushing for referendum contrary to the United Republican party's stand.

"CORD kicked out Gideon Mung'aro from his leadership position in Parliament when he was allegedly became pro-government. Odinga should not direct Jubilee on the measures to take against defiant party members. We will also kick out those who support referendum," he warned.

Nandi County Senator, Stephen Sang and the County MP, Zipporah Kering, who were both at the press conference at Parliament Buildings condemned the fracas caused by rowdy pro-referendum youths in the county Monday during the URP meeting.

Sang alleged that the "hired hooligans by CORD" carrying pro-referendum placards interrupted the party's meeting and injured the Nandi County's Chief of Staff officer to show that the County is in strong support of referendum.

"We are entirely opposed to referendum as URP leaders in Nandi County. We have information that the pro-referendum youths were hired and is the responsibility of the police to do thorough investigation to establish the truth," said Sang.

He added that County will remain opposed to the call for referendum be it for the Pesa Mashinani or CORD's for the government to have ample time in fulfilling its manifesto.
