Several Rift valley politicians have praised Raila Odinga’s Cord coalition for putting the government on its toes in the fight to ensure public funds are not embezzled.
West Pokot Senator John Loyangapuo and Civil Aviation Authority chairman Samuel Poghisio said the opposition coalition has helped save taxpayer funds.
They asked President Uhuru Kenyatta and DP William Ruto to cooperate with Raila and others in the opposition for it to be able to carry out its mandate.
“The government should allow Raila and cord to perform their duties. In every country there must be an opposition that acts as the watchdog,” Lonyangapuo said in Kaibos on Saturday.
His remarks came after Uhuru accused Raila of peddling propaganda and lying to the public about corruption scandals in Jubilee government that have led to loss of billions of tax payers’ money.
Other leaders who have condemned Uhuru’s juvinile attack include Governor Rutto, KANU Sec Gen Nic Salat, Hon Ngeno, Hon Cheruiyot among others.
The two have traded accusations as more corruption scandals continue to arise under Jubilee’s rule.
The President once told the Cord chief to let him enjoy “feasting on meat” as opposition watched.
