President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy will now not be answerable to the opposition party CORD’s demonstrations after the formation of the Jubilee party.
Speaking during a press release held at Karen Business Centre, the former Minister, Noah Wekesa said they would be able to handle the opposition party issues and not their principals Uhuru Kenyatta and William Ruto.
Kiraitu Murungi, the deputy chairman of the committee echoed Wekesa’s sentiment by urging the opposition party, CORD to also merge their affiliate parties to be a strong force and even facilitate the negotiation they proposed to oust IEBC commissioners.
Murungi said he finds the CORD intention to disband the electoral commission through street protests, a fundamental contradiction because the very CORD leaders were on the forefront in fighting for the new constitution in 2010.
Majority leader Aden Duale termed the CORD demonstrations against IEBC as going against the law and creating a constitutional coup. He said CORD leaders should be held responsible for the deaths and destruction of property witnessed during CORD demos.
The Jubilee National Steering Committee had met to fast track the process of formation of a new Jubilee Party ahead of the 2017 elections.
