From the look of things Cord party politics seems to be taking a fresh turn every day closer to the next year’s general polls.
The latest developments are ones that should send clear signals for a plan B for the Akamba people as the likelihood of their son carrying the cord’s flag is gradually dwindling.
Hopes were high in Ukambani when the Former Prime Minister and the Cord co-principal Raila Odinga had hinted he was ready to step down and support another Cord candidate.
Kalonzo Musyoka seemed to be the most likely pick for Raila with other cord leaders speculating that the Amani Party leader Musalia Mudavadi would also join the team.
But if the utterances made by Rao last Saturday is anything to go by, then the Kambas ambitious dream could only remain as that.
The cord leader Raila Odinga said he will remain the Cord’s presidential candidate in the forth coming 2017 General Elections. Raila dismissed claims he was ready to endorse anybody else saying he will not allow someone into his house and build a structure without his approval.
He said those saying he will endorse someone else are insane. “I can’t let that happen.” He said.
Mr Odinga, is the only CORD leader who is yet to launch his presidential bid. He was speaking when he attended a funeral of Mr Wiliam Ragana in Ramula, Ugunja constituency where he expressed confidence that Cord will win the 2017 elections by a landslide, if the process is free and fair.
