Kajiado Central member of parliament Hon. Gen. (rtd) Joseph Nkaissery has been told to resign and seek fresh mandate if he is dissatisfied with ODM and CORD which sent him to parliament.
Gen. Nkaissery is among a group of ODM and CORD MPs opposed to rallies being organized by Coalition for Reforms and Democracy which the maa have endorsed as a new attempt to force the government to implement the Truth, Justice and Reconciliation Commission among other historical injustices.
“As a maasai elder, a Kajiado Central constituent and a life member of the Orange Democratic Movement which is a coalition partner in CORD, I cannot let the sentiments by Hon. Nkaissery go unchallenged. Hon Nkaissery talks on his own behalf and does not represent the maasai community,” said Mr Paul Ole Kaikai.
Ole Kaika, who contested the Kajiado Central parliamentary seat urged Nkaissery to resign and seek a TNA ticket for the same seat rather than claim to be government allied yet retain his legal status in parliament as an ODM legislator.
“The issues CORD is raising are very fundamental to the Maasai community yet Gen. Nkaissery is downplaying them. He is wrecking the opposition agenda from within,” added Ole Kaika.
CORD leader Raila Odinga was received by a mammoth crowd of the maasai community at Ntulele who defied Nkaiserry. The MP had earlier threatened CORD with unspecified consequence is the rally happens.
