CORD MP wants Kidero to vie for Presidency in 2017


kidero odmKitutu Chache South MP Richard Onyonka, wants Nairobi Governor Evans Kidero to run for the presidency come 2017.

Mr Onyonka said Dr Kidero is the only hope Nyanza region has of ever producing a president to lead the republic of Kenya.

“If not Kidero, I really do not see any other hope of having a President from Nyanza region. We should give him adequate support when the right time comes,” he said.

He said his statement was prompted by the numerous developmental projects that Kidero has initiated, which attract a leader to the electorate.

“He is working hard to alleviate poverty. That is the leader we want not those going round making noise all over, yet our people remain in poverty. Kidero will be a president,” Onyonka said.

Kabondo Kasipul MP Sylvans Osele, said they still recognise former Prime Minister Raila Odinga as the ‘rooster’ of the Orange Democratic (ODM) Party.

“Nevertheless, that does not prevent other cocks from crowing, and hence, Kidero should not also be prevented,” he said adding that he sees nothing wrong with Kidero pushing for  development agenda.

“If one is self-centred, he should stick with his selfishness in his own home and let those who are generous do what they are talented in,” Mr Osele said.

Development leadership

He said he supports leaders who do not divide people into ethnic cocoons and clanism, but whose leadership is geared towards uniting the country in development.

Kidero, however, avoided politics in his speech at a function in which he launched Kabondo Kasipul Women Sacco.

“Politics has ended. Currently, we are focusing on development issues. All development programmes should be directed into the hands of women because they never go wrong,” he said.
