Community demands apology for Nakuru CORD meeting disruption

CORD leaders

Professionals from the Kisii community in Nakuru have asked Nakuru Governor Kinuthia wa Mbugua and Bahati MP Kimani Ngunjiri to apologise for the disruption of the meeting convened by CORD leader Raila Odinga on Saturday.

Addressing a press conference in Nakuru on Tuesday, the professionals, who were part of the group that was to be addressed on Saturday, condemned the violence saying it was wrong for the meeting to have been disrupted by the pro Jubilee youths.

According to Sospeter Tomato, the group had sought audience with the CORD leaders claiming they were being sidelined in the running of county affairs.

“We decided to call for the meeting because it has been difficult for us to reach governor Kinuthia wa Mbugua and the county commissioner to address the underlying issues,” said Sospeter.

His sentiments were echoed by Rose Nyakiba and Dr Isoe Ochoki, who called on the governor to ensure all communities in the county are served equally, adding that if political undertones are not tamed, then it would easily spark chaos in the country.

However, Nakuru County Secretary Joseph Motari dismissed the allegations that the community has been sidelined, noting that they have been considered in key county appointments.
