Finally RAILA drops KALONZO/ WETANGULA like hot potatoes - ODM will go alone in 2017!Editor's Choice 11:33
Saturday October 1, 2016 - Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party leader, Raila Odinga, has sent the strongest indication that his party will go it alone in 2017 without its CORD partners.
Addressing ODM leaders in Narok on Friday, Raila asked ODM supporters to strengthen the party since the party is considering going alone without Wiper Democratic Movement and Ford Kenya which are affiliated to CORD.
Raila also said that his party is not keen on going to the nominations as a collation as proposed by Wiper leader, Kalonzo Musyoka.
Raila also asked ODM supporters to steer clear of CORD politics and focus on ODM as a party.
Raila equated political parties to religion, which has different churches with individual policies and regulations.
“I ask the leaders who will get a chance to address the rally to steer clear of CORD issues. Let us talk about how we will strengthen our party and clinch the presidency next year’s election. There is a difference between ODM and other parties, just like in religion where Muslims cannot be Christians,” Raila said.
