NAIROBI, Kenya, Oct 20 – CORD principles on Thursday joined President Uhuru Kenyatta and other dignitaries in celebrating Mashujaa day in Machakos, meant for honouring the country’s heroes and heroines.
Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka who was accompanied by his counterpart Moses Wetangula of Ford Kenya took the chance to urge for unity in the country and constructive politics aimed at building the nation.
He said his presence at the celebration was meant to show respect to the heroes no matter the political differences with the Jubilee government.
“Let us build one inclusive cohesive nation. And this is why I could not afford to miss a day like this,” Musyoka said addressing the President, “but if you (President) do other projects aimed at helping Jubilee you will not find me with you, and if I do, I will only be coming to criticize. And this is competitive open politics.”
The former Vice President who was given the chance to speak by the Deputy President William Ruto, did not miss to mention those who have defected from his party and other CORD affiliate parties, adding that they had the freedom, only that they ‘stand to lose’ in the coming election.
He maintains that his goal to vie for president still remains.
“I want to tell you, if they accept me to take Jubilee home, the corruption issue that had disturbed you, until yesterday you said some need to carry their own cross, they know if it is your bother Stephen they will have to leave their positions and that would be the end of the story,” Musyoka said.
ODM leader Raila Odinga he said, had travelled out of the country hence could not attend the event.
