CORD leaders confident Kidero will prevail over Waititu

Nairobi - The Supreme Court has set the date for the trial disputing Nairobi Governor Evans Kidero's election.
The case will be heard between June 6 and 9 after both the prosecution and defence agreed to the case modalities.
The case is at the Supreme Court after Kidero appealed an earlier ruling in which his election was nullified by the Court of Appeal.
Kidero was last week re-instated by the Supreme Court as Governor until the case is heard and completed.
The pre-trial meeting between the two sides and the bench which was held Friday held that the case continue on the said dates following the respective lawyers' agreements.
After the brief meeting, CORD leaders who had accompanied Kidero expressed confidence over the matter.
Bungoma senator and CORD principal Moses Wetangula was expressly confident Kidero would be okay.
" We have accompanied our brother here to show him support in his current plight and looking at the case in hand, we are confident he will be okay, he said.
His Siaya counterpart James Orengo was also confident the matter would not be resolved by a by-election.
" We are confident our brother Kidero will prevail at the first time of asking and get back to normal business, he said.
