WETANGULA rejects RAILA’s plan and vows to do the opposite in 2017! The end of CORD?County Politics, News 10:19
Saturday October 1, 2016 - Ford Kenya Leader, Moses Wetangula, has rejected the proposal by former Prime Minister Raila Odinga’s CORD to have joint nominations for all electable seats in the 2017 General Election.
Addressing the press at his Kanduyi home yesterday, Wetangula ruled out CORD holding joint nominations for all seats across the country.
He said CORD will only hold a joint nomination in Nairobi, but each affiliate party will field candidates in all other electoral regions.
“We don’t want to lose the Nairobi Governor’s seat which is why we will hold a joint nomination, but individual parties will field candidates in all other electable seats across the country,” said Wetangula.
Asked what his suggestion holds for the future of the coalition, Wetangula said CORD is intact and assured supporters that he will remain united with his two colleagues.
“Raila, Kalonzo and I are united. We are championing the interests of downtrodden Kenyans and we will certainly agree on the best candidate who will unseat Jubilee from power,” he said.
