Nairobi - A group of Jubilee MPs allied to the TNA wing have accused
Deputy President William Ruto of derailing IEBC peace talks.
The MPs, who spoke to News24 on condition they not be named
stated that the DP had been the major roadblock to talks to end the impasse
with his hardline stance on the matter.
According to the MPs from Central Kenya and Nairobi, the
IEBC’s structure must be changed to allow peaceful polls and a cohesive nation
since the CORD Coalition represents the view of millions of Kenyans too.
“The IEBC must be changed because there are millions who
want it to and do not have hope in it,” an MP from Kiambu said.
“The DP must agree with it. He is the one forcing this
process to take long. He must be flexible. Kenya belongs to us all,” the MP
Another MP from Nyeri stated that despite the CORD Coalition
being forceful about their proposal, they are as big a client of the IEBC as the
ruling coalition and thus must be listened to.
“There are those who are against the IEBC being changed from
high up which is not healthy for the nation. Changes are for the good of the country
not some individual feelings,” the MP stated.
The DP is on record as saying that the IEBC will remain in
office until the CORD protests all over the country end.
