Nairobi – TNA Chairman, Johnson Sakaja has cautioned CORD against using Jubilee MPs to push their agenda in Parliament.
Sakaja has claimed that the opposition “hired” Nandi Hills MP, Alfred Keter to push its agenda of having Devolution Cabinet Secretary Anne Waiguru impeached on corruption allegations in her ministry.
“CORD should use its members to achieve its goals not to use Jubilee errant members. We know that Keter is being used by CORD through his motion of impeaching Devolution Cabinet Secretary but we have no problem or fear in dealing with that motion when brought in the House,” affirmed Sakaja.

He told Keter and CORD legislators to desist from blaming National Assembly Speaker, Justin Muturi for delayed approval of his motion for presentation in the House and instead asked them to adhere to the Speaker’s directive of ensuring that the motion cites substantial grounds as to why Waiguru should be impeached.
“CORD and its messenger, Keter should not blame the Speaker but their own mediocrity. They need to do more research on their petition and cite grounds that Waiguru broke the law in discharging her duties,” said Sakaja.
However, the TNA chairman maintained that Waiguru is innocent on grounds that she is not directly involved in the corruption allegations in her ministry.
He further said the opposition was targeting Waiguru due to her remarkable performance in the ministry through initiating the Huduma Centres that have made it easy to access government services, National Youth Service projects among others.
Sakaja was speaking to the press at Parliament Buildings.
