Nairobi - MPs from the Jubilee coalition have vowed to block a plan by their Cord counterparts to secure a retirement package for former Prime Minister Raila Odinga.
According to The Standard, Cord MPs are planning to seek an amendment to the Presidential Retirement and Benefits Act that is being enjoyed by former President Mwai Kibaki.
They want the former Prime Minister and ex-Vice President Kalonzo Musyoka be given similar State-funded retirement, but their Jubilee counterparts are saying that the former PM will only enjoy the benefits if he officially retires from politics.
