Nairobi - I am not leaving CORD for Jubilee, Governor says.
Makueni Governor Kivutha Kibwana says that he is still a strong part of the CORD Coalition and says that he will support Wiper Party Leader Kalonzo Musyoka's Presidential ambition.
Kibwana was elected on a Muungano Party ticket in the 2013 polls and says that at the moment, he is still staying put.
" I have not announced any change. In 2013 I backed CORD because the people of Makueni did so. I have not changed my mind on that," he said.
He added that he has been working closely with the Jubilee government to develop Makueni and that his is a mutual relationship with President Uhuru Kenyatta and DP William Ruto.
" We have supported government initiatives in Makueni to give our people a chance to have their lives improved and we will continue despite political affiliation," he added.
He also stated that the process of reforming the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commision IEBC must be done openly to ensure that there is clarity ahead of the 2017 elections.
" The IEBC is vital to the future of this country and any reforms must be done with that in mind," he added.
The IEBC is set to be reformed ahead of the next polls after its current leadership agreed to a deal to leave office in the wake of pressure from the opposition over their ability to handle free and fair elections.
