CORD: Jubilee using voter registration ro rig 2017 election

22 February 2016, 09:47 John Kioko

Kwale - Coalition for Reforms and Democracy leaders on Saturday pitched camp in Kwale County where they took a swipe at the ruling government saying there are plans to start rigging 2017 general election through voter’s registration exercise.

Led by CORD co-principal Kalonzo Musyoka, the leaders claimed that the moving of BVR kits from one voter registration center to the other is a clear indication of plans to rig the next general election.

“They want to ensure locals and especially our zones don’t register voters in large numbers,” he said at Maasai ground-Ukunda in Kwale.

Kalonzo said that the only way to liberate the country from the chains of poor Jubilee leadership is by voting in 2017.

He asked Uhuru Kenyatta to prepare to go home if CORD co-principals, Moses Wetang'ula and Raila Odinga pick him as the coalition flag bearer in 2017.

The leader also accused the Jubilee administration of the continued disappearance of youths in the coastal region saying time has come for Coast people to use their votes as weapon against the enemy.  

Kwale Governor Salim Mvurya who said voter registration in the area is disappointing as majority have been locked out of the exercise.

“If we don’t lay the foundation of good leadership today, our children and grandchildren will be crying like us 50 years to come,” said Mombasa Senator Hassan Omar Hassan.

He said that through voting, tyranny of hope will replace the tyranny of numbers that is ruling the country.

Nyali MP, Hezron Awiti said it is time for CORD to take over the country’s leadership by force by ensuring Kenyans votes for them and dealing with  election rigging.

Matuga MP, Hassan Mwanyoha assured CORD principals of support by area residents.

Lamu County women representative, Shakila Abdalah blamed the re-emergence of MRC and other illegal groups on poor leadership and lack of jobs.

“The only way to liberate ourselves is by voting for Kalonzo Musyoka as President,” she said.

Leaders also asked Kenyans to stand firm or end up like Uganda.

They criticized the re-election of Yoweri Museveni saying that the world only recognizes Kizza Besigye as Uganda's President.

“If we don’t protect democracy, President Uhuru Kenyatta will do to us what Museveni did to Ugandans,” he cautioned.

He claimed that Museveni is the biggest advisor of President Uhuru Kenyatta and Paul Kagame of Rwanda.

“We must take Jubilee government home in 2017,” said Omar.

Kalonzo Musyoka said that Kenyans won’t be treated like Ugandans.

They were accompanied by MP Zuleikha Juma, Francis Nyenze, Makali Mulu and MCAs Omar Boga, Omar Kitengele, Omar Mwakwambirizwa and Wiper secretary Ali Mwapishi among others.
