Elgeyo Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen and Kinango MP Gozi Rai have accused CORD Principal Raila Odinga of 'playing with the minds of Kenyans' saying he was not interested in development but empty rhetoric.
Murkomen particularly took issue with how Raila Odinga is running Cord and ODM saying he was a dictator worst than what was witnessed during the former Kanu regime.
He described Raila as a leader who cannot entertain dissenting opinion among leaders allied to his party.
Murkomen singled out the ouster of Kilifi North MP Gideon Mungaro as Minority Whip and the recent disruption of ODM election by ‘men in black’ as the work of  Raila Odinga whom he said was taking the country back to the dark days.
“Our brothers at the CORD should sort out their leadership problems first before pointing accusing fingers at the Government which is doing its best to solve the challenges facing Kenyans,” he said.
“CORD should stop pointing out the ills of the Government and yet it has failed to solve the problem of leadership facing his ODM party,” said Murkomen.
The senator was speaking in Mt Elgon on Saturday during a tour with Deputy President William Ruto.
Other leaders included MPs John Serut (Mt. Elgon), Robert Pukose (Endebes), John Waluke (Sirisia), Konzi Rai (Kinangop), William Cheptumo (Baringo North), Reginalda Wanyonyi (Women MP Bungoma) and Bungoma Governor Kenneth Lusaka among others.
The leaders said Kenyans were not ready to engage in petty politicking and the country was not ready for a referendum.
Waluke said he will work closely with the Government in solving the problems facing his constituents, saying it was wrong for some leaders to put the country in a permanent campaign mood.
“Those who lost in the last general election should concentrate on the work of ensuring the Government serves the people well instead of engaging in mere politicking all the years round,” said Waluke.
