Nairobi, KENYA: Ford Kenya party leader Moses Wetangula has vehemently denied allegations that there is emergence of divisions within the Coalition for Reforms and Democracy, CORD.

“We have a committee and our party is represented by my deputy Dr Bonny Khakwale ,Dr Eseli Simiyu ,Cynthia mutelia,and Dr Chris Wamalwa ,wiper senator Muthama ,senator Musila ,Mama Jessica Mbalu ,ODM has Orengo ,Oparanya Kingi , Mish Mboko and Junet Mohammed . We have five representatives from each party.” Wetangula said
He said that the coalition is intact following the fact that CORD principals are always in touch ; insisting that the parties will not afford to go alone giving a leeway Jubilee to emerge as a winner in 2017 general elections.
“These are our juniors, Raila ,me and Kalonzo on our part we keep on talking, If we reach on an agreement before they complete their report we will implement our reservations; if we dont agree we will wait for their report .”He said.
“Importantly we as CORD we know we must be together to save our country .”He added
Wetangula said that CORD fraternity is dismayed in the manner the government is handling IEBC commissioners exit; insisting that they must leave office immediately to pave way for the other team to prepare for the upcoming general elections .
“We as a party and on this i also speak on behalf of our coalition cord, we are not happy with the game being played with the intended exit from office of IEBC commissioners, the law is in place ,negotiated in a bi partisan manner clearly defining and setting the deadline for IEBC to leave office ,they ought to have left office yesterday.” He said
Consequently, he threatened that CORD might be forced to take some unspecified action if the issue is not fast tracked.
“And if they don’t leave office ,we as CORD we have got our other card in place which Kenyans know .”He added.
