Moses Wetangula and Kalonzo Musyoka have now come out to insist that CORD is more unified and there is no disquiet in the coalition.
Despite the fact that both want Raila Odinga to step aside from his presidential bid to give them a chance to be the coalition’s flag bearer in the 2017 presidential elections
Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka told off critics saying the coalition will not be broken down by minor issues.
“We know that our opponents are keen to see us disintegrate, we tell them that they will wait for a long time because we have unity of purpose and we are mature as a coalition to be broken down by minor issues,” said Kalonzo.
Ford Kenya leader Moses Wetangula also clarified his previous statements to the media saying that the coalition remains strong.
“I am not against Raila based on the statement I made. All I was saying is that as CORD, we should perhaps change strategy so that we can beat Jubilee in 2017, otherwise this is very strong coalition,” said Wetang’ula quoted by The Standard .
The Bungoma county senator had claimed that Odinga’s voters are tired of voting for him only for the votes to be rigged, therefore urging him to allow fresh people in the race.
“People vote for you, the votes are stolen and they start to think that even if they vote for you again the same thing will happen,” he said during an interview on KTN.
Wetangula also warned Raila that numbers in political rallies do not translate into votes speaking about his recent western tour.
He blasted Raila Odinga for visiting Western Kenya without him, but later retracted his statement saying the tour was purely an ODM affair.
Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka also said if CORD wants to win elections in 2017, he is the suitable candidate.
Just days after Raila completed his western tour ANC leader Musalia Mudavadi accused the ODM party leader of disrespecting the ‘Luhya’ community by calling them stupid.
A statement that Raila dismissed saying Mudavadi is propagating tribal politics despite the fact that he wants to president.
However, Kenyapoa has determined that, Moses Wetangula and Kalonzo Musyoka are part of the big scheme by the jubilee to tame Raila Odinga after pay off by President Uhuru Kenyatta to destroy opposition leadership. Both partners are jubilee at night and opposition during the day to confuse the public.
Above all, Wetangula and Kalonzo were part of the jubilee government before signing a secret part with Uhuruto regime to check mate Odinga because of the past violations against him. Voters will punish them for insincerity and they will never rule Kenya again in the future. Kenyan citizenry deserve better leadership than what these two watermelons are providing.
Others criticizing the ODM party leader are Budalangi MP Ababu Namwamba and his Funyula counterpart Paul Otuoma who relinquished their official positions.
CORD leader Raila Odinga left the country on Saturday, July 24 to attend the Democratic Party Convention in Philadelphia,USA.
Raila Odinga’s trip comes days after completing a tour in Western Kenya to quell the growing rebellion among ODM MPs in the region.
