Machakos Governor Dr. Alfred Mutua boycotted today’s retreat of Wiper Democratic Movement, revealing the widening rifts CORD co-Principal Kalonzo Musyoka’s party.
The party however came up with the following resolutions:
â€¢ The Party wishes to congratulate all Team Kenya athletes for the historic achievement at the just concluded IAAF World Championships at Beijing. These young men and women make us extremely proud as a nation and therefore take this opportunity to honour and acknowledge their extraordinary sacrifices to build Brand Kenya as an athletics and sporting powerhouse
â€¢ The Wiper Democratic Movement support the drive towards better salaries for the teachers. The Party supports the teacherâ€™s position to demand their pay as ordered by the Court. Wiper does not support further procrastination of the teachersâ€™ pay and proposes the monies available for the purchase of laptops be diverted towards payment of teachersâ€™ salaries.
â€¢ The Party equally demands adequate security to ensure that normalcy returns in the education sector in Northern Kenya. The government appears clueless towards offering a viable solution to this state of affairs.
â€¢ Wiper shall not support any initiatives aimed at reverting health services to the national government. The National government has systematically undermined county governmentsâ€™ ability to deliver on this mandate. Wiper demands the release of funds to counties and support the Senate to ensure more resources are made available for this function.
â€¢ The Party resolved to continue strengthening its structures in readiness for the 2017 elections
â€¢ The Party resolved to give impetus to its ongoing ID issuance and voter registration drive. All elected leaders and party structures will unveil their respective strategies to ensure this process is carried out with its desired successes. Wiper though cautions the IEBC over disenfranchising CORD strongholds with a view of predetermining the outcome of the elections
â€¢ That we do not support the constitutional amendment Bill for the change of the elections date
â€¢ That we support the Constitutional amendment Bill towards the two-third gender rule with the aim of consolidating gains for the women of Kenya and honouring our obligations under the Constitution.
â€¢ That we call upon the government of Kenya to desist from taking measures that will further ail the sugar sector in Kenya. We are concerned about the Jubilee regimeâ€™s arbitrary strategies that threaten rather than secure the interest of the sugarcane farmers and the entire sugar sector
â€¢ That the Party has mandated its disciplinary committee to invoke its mandate. Though the Party remains focused and undeterred by Jubilee â€“ inspired detractors.
