Wiper Democratic Movement leader Kalonzo Musyoka has scorned at Jubilee government’s scorecard over the three year period it has been in power.

In a statement to newsrooms, Kalonzo claimed that Jubilee had misgoverned the country due to lack of experience and goodwill from Kenyans.

“Jubilee regime has no clue what governance is all about. For instance, how can you stop Vision 2030 projects like Kenya Airport Authority Greenfield?” he poised.

The CORD co-principal accused Jubilee of heightening corruption, tribalism and intimidation adding that Kenyans have been made bitter by the mismanagement of the country.

Kalonzo said the State of the Nation address slated for Thursday is a public relations exercise aimed at covering up the failures is government.

“Last year, President Kenyatta presented names of suspected corrupt officials in his address but one year down the line, no conviction has been realised,” he said.

The Wiper leader claims that IEBC had lost its independence and is under the instructions of the Jubilee administration, thus has no mandate whatsoever to superintend the next elections.

“IEBC must go, how can you explain on what basis was Duale announcing that our signatures did not meet the threshold? It is simple, IEBC is Jubilee and vice versa.”

He said most of the development projects in Jubilee’s scorecard, including rural electrification and development of road network, were initiated by the Grand Coalition which was composed of himself, President Mwai Kibaki and CORD leader Raila Odinga.

Kalonzo’s pronouncement adds to the growing disapproval from CORD members over Jubilee performance during their time in government.

ODM, through its chairman John Mbadi, on Tuesday expressed skepticism and apparent unease with the State of the Nation address saying past ceremonies had set a bad precedence.

“Consequently, ODM is consulting widely within itself and with coalition partners in CORD on how to ensure the State of the Nation address lives up to its billing as contained in the Constitution and does not continue to degenerate into a public relations exercise for the ruling Jubilee coalition and empty rhetoric by the President,” said Mbadi.

The event is set for Thursday afternoon at Parliament Buildings in Nairobi.
