When the Coalition for Reforms and Democracy (CORD) first announced the names of its representatives on the talks between the coalition and the Jubilee government on how to deal with the IEBC stalemate there was lot of criticism due to the inclusion of Mombasa County Women Representative Mishi Mboko in the team.
The criticism even came from as high as the Deputy president William Ruto who was quoted saying “We were discussing with some MPs yesterday over the choice of Senator Muthama and Mishi Mboko to engage us in dialogue and some Jubilee leaders told me we should consider choosing Moses Kuria and Baba Yao as well”
Critics argued that Mishi Mboko was not supposed to be in the team considering the seriousness the issue deserves.
Well, CORD seems not to have been moved by this criticism, this evening (Wednesday , 22nd) it yet again made public its representatives in the talks and guess what Mishi Mboko’s name appeared yet again.
A statement from ODM Director of Communications Philip Etale reads
“CORD has this evening picked James Orengo, Eseli Simiyu, Prof Hellen Sambili of Kanu, Mutula Kilonzo Jr. Junet Mohammed, Mishi Mboko and Johnstone Muthama to represent it in the Joint Parliamentary Select Committee on Matters Relating to IEBC following a final deal with Jubilee.”
