CORD Leader and former Vice-President Kalonzo Musyoka hit out Jubilee over referendum, warning the alliance in government that there were â€œno two waysâ€ about the countryâ€™s quest for equitable distribution of national resources.
“The first amendment should be to strengthen the Senate and increase the counties allocation to 40 per cent of national revenue. This must be anchored in law,” said Musyoka.
Calling some leaders in government â€œselfishâ€, Musyoka accused the Jubilee government of wanting to dish out resources to counties that are friendly to the government, conveniently using public funds as baits for political support.
At the same time, Musyoka revelead they will strengthen CORD and make their coalition a formidable political machine for future polls.
“We are just on leave for the next four years after which we will bounce back more emboldened and smarter,” Kalonzo said.
Accompanied by senior Ukambani leaders, Musyoka was speaking at the home-coming ceremony for Mwingi Central ward representative Bernard Munyasya which was also attended by Kitui Governor Dr Julius Malombe, Kitui West MP Bernard Kitungi as well as members of the County Assembly and Mwingi professionals.
Dr Malombe hit out at â€œmolesâ€ in Ukambani being wooed with sugar-coated promises by the Jubilee Alliance to work closer with the government, Â a clear reference to Machakos Gov Alfred Mutua whose dalliance with Jubilee leaders is well-known.
