CORD should not frustrate MPs who have decamped to Jubilee

26 September 2016, 10:09 Ben Wafula

Bungoma - Bungoma County Woman Representative Reginalda Wanyonyi has called on CORD leaders to stop frustrating MPs who recently decamped to Jubilee Party.

Speaking at Kanduyi Red Cross Hall while distributing the Affirmative Action Funds, Wanyonyi noted that subjecting the legislators to a by-election is in bad faith.

“We are only remaining with 10 months to the general election; it will be a wastage of resources and time if by-elections are held in areas whose legislators decamped to Jubilee. That was their personal decision and it should be respected,” she said.

She said that in any democratic space, personal decisions should be respected and the defectors given time to reflect on their decision.

“Kenya is a democratic country and every party should work hard to protect its territory. Those who fail to keep their soldiers should also respect them when they jump ship and join their enemies. Everybody looks for greener pastures and they should not be intimidated.

She said that Jubilee Party was laying its structures and soon they will be on the ground selling its manifestos to potential voters.

Wanyonyi noted that once leadership structures are put in place, they will move all over the country popularizing JP in areas allegedly owned by the opposition.

“We have to make sure that we retain the leadership of this country. We can’t avoid being in opposition; let’s work hard to ensure opposition can’t get majority seats,” he said.
