Kamba leaders urge Kalonzo to ditch CORD

Raila Odinga (ODM) is pictured with his CORD Coalition partners Kalonzo Musyoka (WIPER) and Moses Wetangula (FORD) on stage at a CORD rally at Malindi in 2013.

A section of Kamba politicians allied to the former VP Kalonzo Musyoka have told him to quit the Coalition for Reforms and Democracy (CORD) and join the ruling party as chances of him being named as the Cord’s flag bearer are quite slim.

These leaders have asked Wiper Party leader Kalonzo Musyoka to abandon the coalition saying the future of the community in the opposition was bleak. They said that the Kamba nation cannot afford to be in opposition anymore.

The leaders included Mike Sonko (Nairobi Senator) Victor Munyaka (Machakos Town), Regina Ndambuki (Kilome), Vincent Musyoka (Mwala), Benson Mbai (Masinga), Kisoi Munyao (Mbooni), Moses Kuria (Gatundu South), David Kareithi (Tigania West), Kanini Kega (Kieni) Joseph Kahangara (Lari).

The leaders said it was evidently clear that CORD Principal Raila Odinga who is too selfish and appears to be grooming other people to back him up is not likely to allow another candidate to take on the mantle.

The CORD Coalition has been hit by disquiet with the three co-principals holding parallel political rallies with none showing any intentions of giving up their ambitions.

On Saturday while on a campaign trail in Narok. Ford -K party leader Moses Wetangula urged Raila to step down for either of the two co-principal as he had tried his luck at the seat a couple of times. Kalonzo while in Mombasa over the weekend vowed he will not give up and sacrifice his ambitions for anyone.

Raila has however remained adamant going on with his political lobbying for the presidency.
