Ford-Kenya Launches Online Registration System
Ford-Kenya has launched an online registration system that will allow interested Kenyans to join the party as members.
The launch, it has emerged, is among the initiatives the party is putting in place to ensure that its party leader gathers enough support before the 2017 General Elections.
Addressing journalists at the Party headquarters in Nairobi, Ford-Kenya Party Leader Senator Moses Wetangula said that over one million new members will be registered before 2017.
Wetangula who is also the Minority Leader in the Senate maintained that the party will be fielding a presidential candidate in 2017.
The Party Leader at the same time urged the government to strengthen the office of the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission, Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) and the Auditor General by allocating more funds to the institutions, to allow them undertake their functions efficiently.
“The institutions mandated with the task to investigate corruption cases and prosecute have not been able to undertake thorough analysis due to inadequate funds,” said Wetangula.
He lashed at the Members of Parliament who are blaming the DPP Keriako Tobiko for the collapse of cases, adding that the DPP cannot be able to prosecute individuals whom their cases are weak.
Wetangula’s remarks follows an orchestrated plan by a section of the Jubilee MPs, led by Maina Kamanda (Starehe), who has accused the DPP of being biased in the on- going graft cases and wants him out of office.
The Bungoma Senator has also asked the National government to increase the devolution kitty, saying that with more funds, Kenyans across the country will be able to acquire quality education, health care as well as initiate development projects.
