CORD MPs lead other LUOs to reject KIDERO’s money – Say LUOs don’t need money coming from UHURU/ RUTO indirectly
Monday December 30, 2013 – Barely a day after politicians from Luo Nyanza called for a meeting to discuss and tame Nairobi Governor, Dr. Evans Kidero, and his huge contribution at fundraisers in Rongo, Migori County, a section of MPs now want Luos to reject monies from Kidero.
The legislators led by Suba MP, John Mbadi, and Ugunja counterpart, James Wandayi, threatened to rally their people not to accept any funds from Governor Kidero because the money is not his but belongs to Uhuru and Ruto.
Mbadi noted that Kidero is being funded by Uhuru and Ruto to fight former Prime Minister, Raila Odinga, in Nyanza and that he will not accept money from Jubilee.
“We do not want money from Evans Kidero because its source is Uhuru/ Ruto – bringing to a harambee one million shillings does not help in anyway. If Kidero feels he has too much money, then he should help build roads and infrastructure in Nyanza”, said Mbadi.
His sentiments were echoed by Wandayi, who said Kidero is biting more than he can chew and that Luos will not accept any money meant to fight Raila Odinga’s dominance in Nyanza.
