BUNGOMA Senator Moses Wetang'ula has said the goverment has been biased in its key appointments. He accused President Uhuru Kenyatta of sidelining people from areas perceived to be from Cord strongholds.
"There have been almost six appointments including Managing director KPLC, Kenya Airports Authority, Rural Electrification, and Kenya Bureau of Standards. All the positions went to the community where the president comes from and one went to the Deputy President region," he said. Wetang'ula was speaking in Kwanza district over the weekend during a fundraiser.
He said the only way to bring such balances in the government is by amending the constitution through referendum. He said the campaign for the cord on referendum is unstoppable. "Raila Odinga, Kalonzo Musyoka and I will continue moving across the counties to ensure Kenyans go to the referendum, because we know Kenyans rely on the reality we tell them," he said.
He said leaders from both cord and jubilee want more money allocated to counties. "This years national budget was more than sh.1 trillion but it is bad that even the budget allocated for counties is not even a half of the budget," Wetangula said. He said denying counties adequate funds will result in inbalance when it comes to regional economic growths.
