Put up or ship out, Kalonzo tells defiant CORD MPs
Former Vice President Kalonzo Musyoka has challenged three CORD MPs from Ukambani to put up or ship out of the coalition.
Kalonzo told MPs Victor Munyaka (Machakos Town, CCU), Francis Mwangangi (Yatta, Muungano) and Vincent Musyoka (Mwala, CCU) to consider working with other CORD leaders or abandon the alliance altogether. The Wiper party leader said it was unacceptable for the three to be allowed to wreck the coalition by fighting it from within.
“I am sending a stern warning to Munyaka, Mwangangi and Vincent to respect Wiper and CORD leadership if they are truly in the coalition or join the Jubilee alliance. We cannot entertain traitors from within anymore,” said Kalonzo. Unity Speaking at Mama Malia Home and Schools in Tseikuru District, Kitui County, the former VP wondered why the three MPs had chosen to belittle him and the Wiper leadership at large by constant unwarranted attacks.
“I want to invite the three MPs to a CORD retreat in Naivasha on February 3 and 4 if they are really members of the coalition but if not, they should join Jubilee,” said Kalonzo. He said it was ill-advised for any CORD leader to try to drive a wedge between him and the coalition’s 2013 presidential candidate Raila Odinga. He warned leaders against using differences between Machakos Governor Alfred Mutua and Senator Johnson Muthma to politically disfranchise the Kamba community.
Wetangula called for unity in the coalition ahead of the 2017 elections. He reiterated that the three CORD principals will remain united until the next election. “If Kalonzo, Raila and I go different ways ahead of the next polls, then we would have given our competitor early Christmas.”
