"The government has not shown any move or interest to fulfill the needs of Kenyans on devolution matters which Kenyans had waited for a long time," he added.
He urged MPs allied to CORD alliance to avoid being lured by Jubilee government to also frustrate devolution.
“The aim of Jubilee is to kill devolution and so I urge my friends is parliament to be very careful and keep distance from the Jubilee government," he cautioned.
He was accompanied by leader of minority party Francis Nyenze, Kilifi North MP Gideon Mung’aro, Kiminini MP Chris Wamalwa, Awendo MP Jared Opiyo, Ndhiwa MP Agostinho Neto, Kwale County women representative Zainab Chidzuga, Kilifi County women representative Aisha Katana, Lungalunga MP Khatib Mwashetani and Mbita MP Millie Odhiambo among others.

Ndhiwa MP Agostinho Neto said that Coast people, many of whom are CORD supporters, voted for the new constitution so that their land issues can be addressed but Jubilee government is frustrating the move.
