Opposition principal Kalonzo Musyoka.

Seven other Kamba MPs have disowned their opposition principal Kalonzo Musyoka saying they will work with the Jubilee government.

This comes in the wake of a meeting held between them and the Deputy President William Ruto where he urged the Kamba community to support the Jubilee Government.

The deserting MPs said that no amount of intimidation will stop them from working with the Jubilee Administration for the sake of development of their people.

DP Ruto told them that they stand to benefit from Jubilee asnmn opposed to the Coalition for Reforms and Democracy (CORD) that they are currently aligned to.

“I wish to ask the people of Ukambani to forget what happened in 2013 and support Jubilee come 2017 elections. We know you supported them then but this time let us walk this road together,” said Mr Ruto.

DP Ruto was accompanied by MPs Regina Ndambuki (Kilome), Joe Mutambo (Mwingi Central), John Munuve (Mwingi North), Munyao Kisoi (Mbooni), Rachel Nyamai (Kitui West), Richard Makenga (Kaiti), Dennis Waweru (Dagoretti) and former MPs Kalembe Ndile and Prof Philip Kaloki.

The MPs said they will continue to work with the Government in solving the challenges facing the people of Ukambani despite repeated censures from the Cord leadership.

“We have resolved to work with the Government and nothing will shake us in doing this. Petty politicking cannot take us anywhere,” said MP Kisoi.

The leaders dubbing Jubilee as the winning team told the Kamba community to make a wise decision and support Jubilee come the next general election.

The MPs said they supported the Jubilee administration because its aim was to unite Kenyans.

The MPs said the Opposition was merely seeking cheap publicity in demonstrations they had held calling for the disbandment of  the electoral commission.

The Deputy President also reiterated an earlier stand that the Government would serve all Kenyans equally despite their political affiliations.

“We have to put aside our political differences and serve Kenyans. This is why I am here today,” said Mr Ruto.

Gender and Youth Affairs Cabinet Secretary Sicily Kariuki and Makueni deputy governor Adelina Mwau were also present in the event .
