Ford Kenya Supremacy Battle Isn’t Good, Concentrate On Improving Voters Lives -Kimilili Mp


Kimilili Member of Parliament Didmus Barasa has called on Ford Kenya Party ‘Coup Plotters’ to concentrate in bettering the lives of their voters.

He said that the failed Bomas of Kenya National Delegates Conference is an indication that Bungoma residents need development more than the infighting in the party.
“Let the organizers of a failed coup and Bomas of Kenya NDC meeting concentrate on improving lives of their people, this party infighting can’t help the common Mwananchi,” he said.

Addressing the press in his Kimilili town office, the law maker said that it was sad for the leaders to engage in supremacy battle in the party and failing to prioritise the pledges they made during campaigns.
“When other regions are fostering development, what we are seeing in Bungoma is the party supremacy battle and who should be the best leader, this is unnecessary, let voters pick you based on your development agenda not fighting the party that might lead you back home,” he advised.

The legislator stated that as other Tribes in Central Kenya are fighting to have their minimum returns proposals in Coffee, Tea and Milk is included in BBI documents, a section of Bungoma leaders are busy fighting for the party.
“Even the Maasai’s and other pastoralist communites are fighting for the minimum returns of their livestock to be included in the document before they support it, our leaders are engaged in a supremacy battle over a party,” he said.
The youthful first time Jubilee Mp emphasised the need of leaders concentrating in launching development projects that will guarantee their reelection but the continued infighting will send all of them home.

“People trusted and elected us based on our development pledges, instead of implementing those projects, they are busy showing their financial muscles in a party hence forgetting their roles,” he advised.
The embattled Ford Kenya party leader Moses Wetang’ula is engaged in a supremacy battle with the ‘Coup plotters’ which include Bungoma governor Wycliffe Wangamati, Tongaren Mp Eseli Simiyu and his Kanduyi counterpart Wafula Wamunyinyi.
Simiyu postponed the much anticipated National Delegates Conference that was to be held on Saturday November 21, 2020.
This he said was in compliance with the Office of the Registrar of Political Parties directive and the high court order.
The Registrar of political parties stopped the planned Ford Kenya NDC meeting that was slated for Saturday owing to the available court order.

Wetang’ula rushed to court to obtain the court order after it dawned on him that he was about to be ousted from the plum FK party leadership position.
“The NDC was lawfully convened within the party constitution and the political parties act,” wrote Eseli.
He said it was unfortunate that Hon. Moses Wetang’ula and his team went to the political parties tribunal and simultaneously to the high court to obtain orders to stop the NDC.
“The high court issued another order stopping the NDC, with this order in hand, Wetang’ula team withdrew the other cases in the tribunal,” he said.

He said the order was then served on the ORPP, who has then advised on a letter dated 18th November 2020 that the NDC be held after the high court matter is determined either way.
