Nyeri - Two MPs from Nyeri County have refuted claims of fighting President Uhuru Kenyatta and causing unrest within Jubilee coalition.
The MPs who included Mukurwe-ini MP, Kabando wa Kabando and his Othaya counterpart Mary Wambui said they were behind the Jubilee government and President Kenyatta.
They however said that what they were against was corruption in the government and urged Nyeri people to support them.
“We shall never condone corruption in this country. Our leaders must be accountable for public funds. This constitution should indeed be amended so that those found guilty can be jailed for life,” said Kabando.

He noted that anti-graft war should not be misinterpreted.
He said his recent role in leading Jubilee MPs to rally for the removal of Ann Waiguru from office was just a vocation on transparency of public funds.
Kabando gave examples of Malaysia, Singapore and South Korea which attained their independence after Kenya and yet have developed very fast because of incorruptible leaders.
Wambui called upon the Head of State to crack the whip on those accused of corruption in order for Kenya to develop.
The two were speaking at Kairia Primary School grounds in Othaya during the burial of former journalist Mwangi Geita, 44, who died in a grisly road accident at Thika Superhighway.
The leaders described Geita as a generous, devoted and aggressive journalist who has left a lasting legacy of his work.
