Saturday, 29 October 2016 - Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) senior officials have said that CORD leader, Raila Odinga, and Amani National Congress party leader, Musalia Mudavadi, are going to sign a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) in December so that they can form a formidable alliance to oust the Jubilee Government in 2017.
Speaking to journalists on Thursday, CORD Chief Executive Officer, Norman Magaya, said Raila and Mudavadi will seal the deal in December where they will decide on who will be the opposition’s presidential flag bearer.
“The relationship among all principals is very cordial, all are working aggressively to galvanise the alliance. They consult very regularly and plans are underway to put pen and paper and agree on a campaign plan of action from December to August 2017,” said Magaya.
Political analyst, Edward Kisiangani, of Kenyatta University said the opposition will pose a serious threat to Jubilee if it chooses one flag bearer.
“Yes they can send Jubilee home if they rally behind one candidate and mobilize their bases to register as voters,” Kisiangani said.
