Bungoma - President Uhuru Kenyatta's appointments of former Secretary to the Cabinet Francis Kimemia, former ODM chairman Henry Kosgey, former postmaster-General Hussein Ali and Industrialist Chris Kirubi to chair key boards has attracted the wrath of Cord co-Principal Moses Wetang'ula.
Wetang'ula said three of the appointees; Kimemia, Kirubi and Kosgey come from Uhuru and Deputy President William Ruto's communities.
"Recently the President made seven appointments with virtually all appointees coming from the communities of the President and his Deputy, as a show of the unity of the country.
"In both appointments, the President did not include any sub tribe from Western or Nyanza including the Luhya, Teso and Luo as if we are foreigners," he said.
Wetang'ula was speaking at Kotur village in Teso South on Saturday during the burial of Beatrice Shiundu Etyang, 69, the wife to Justice (retired) Alex Etyang.
Busia Governor Sospeter Ojaamong and his wife Judy Ojaamong attended the burial of the retired teacher who also served as a councilor when Ojaamong was Amagoro MP.
Wetang'ula told Kenyans who don't have Identity cards to acquire and register as voters and remove all bad leaders by voting wisely.
He said the just concluded mass voter registration exercise was pathetic but the numbers of registered voters in Western and Central Province were on a par.
"We are equal when it comes to voter registration but when it comes to counting votes you will find them ahead of us," he said.

Wetang'ula said Bungoma County registered a paltry 38,000 voters out of the targeted 580,000 while Busia registered 27,000 out
He urged Western region governors to set funds that will facilitate registration for IDs and voters cards to kick out Jubilee Government in 2017 elections.
"The Jubilee Government is corrupt to an extent of not being able to account for KES 100 billion arising from the Eurobond scam and defined JAP Party as Just Another Problem (JAP).
"We want to go to Just Another Problem (JAP) if we allow Jubilee to ascend to power in 2017... The debt in the country has risen to KES 3.2 trillion up from 780b during Kibaki's regime," he said.
He regretted that the debt has made every child that is being born today to carry a debt of KES 9,800 just because of poor leadership.
Busia Governor Sospeter Ojaamong called on all leaders to embrace unity ahead of 2017 general elections.
He said it is through unity that they will be able to achieve wholesome development like the ones he has initiated in Busia including MTC, streetlights, improved infrastructure and many others.
Ojaamong said the National Government availed drugs worth KES 12m, with his government purchasing drugs worth KES 88m to ensure there is enough stock at Matayos stores.
