We are ready to work with President UHURU and his deputy RUTO – Nyanza CORD leaders saysPolitics 06:44
Sunday April 14, 2013 - Coalition for Reform and Democracy (CORD) leaders from Nyanza region have said they are more than ready to work with President Uhuru Kenyatta and William Ruto for the sake of development in the region.
The leaders led by former Mugirango MP Mr Omingo Magara said most of the residents in Nyanza have moved on after a humiliating loss in the last poll, and stressed that they were pursuing avenues that would see the perceived CORD stronghold benefit from Uhuru/Ruto’s Presidency.
Magara also defended his move of forming a post election pact with Jubilee government saying that was the only way after losing the election.
“We supported CORD Presidential candidate Raila Odinga, but unfortunately we did not make it. As a party we resolved to find a way to serve and be in government,” Magara said.
Magara said President Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto are young and energetic enough to serve the country with the support of all Kenyans.
Similar sentiments were echoed by CORD leader in Kisumu, George Weda who said residents of Kisumu are more than ready to work with the jubilee government.
Mr Weda said even CORD parliamentarians from the region have revealed to him that they want to join the Jubilee Government for the sake of development in the region.
