KKK alliance draws more criticism
A Coast MP has called on politicians behind KKK alliance to forget dreaming for presidency in 2012 general election.
Sheikh Mohammed Dor (Orange Democratic Movement, Nominated) dismissed the alliance as a movement comprising of tribal chiefs masquerading as national leaders agitating for true change.
The KKK alliance, loosely translated to a political union between the Kalenjin, the Kikuyu and the Kamba tribes, is seen as a vehicle seeking to field a candidate in next year's presidential election.
The MP said the KKK alliance jointly led by Eldoret North MP William Ruto, Deputy Prime Minister Uhuru Kenyatta and Vice President Kalonzo Musyoka will not take the country forward and asked the leaders to drop their agenda.
“We want KKK to be Kenya! Kenya! Kenya. Tribal alliance is irrelevant and anyone thinking of become President under such alliance is dreaming a broad day dream,” Sheikh Dor told reporters in Mombasa on Monday.
While condemning the KKK alliance, the nominated ODM MP asked Kenyan to shun such groupings which he said comprised tribal chauvinists.
Asked whether the KKK alliance is there to destabilise the ODM party, the MP responded “leave a side the destabilisation debate, it is voters who will make final decision in 2012 general election.”
He also lashed out at senior politicians in the government among them Vice President Musyoka of starting early 2012 campaigns at the expense of millions of Kenyans faced with hunger.
“They will be seen as a true national leaders when they will be seen around the country mobilising resources to supply food and water to feed hungry Kenyans devastated by drought,” he said
He condemned the use of state resources including government vehicles in the early 2012 campaigns and asked relevant government departments to block further misuse of tax payers’ money.
“It is saddening to see key government officials are engaged in succession politic and yet millions of Kenyans are on the cliff of deaths due to drought. We want Kenyans to draw the line between they are not patriot leaders but self seekers,” he added.
