Nairobi - CORD leaders played happy family in Naivasha as talk of wrangles within the leading opposition coalition were put to rest.
The leaders addressed members of the press on a day when they held talks tailored to gauge the position of the opposition in the run up to the 2017 General Election.
The various party leaders were all in attendance, including Orange Democratic Movement ODM leader Raila Odinga, Wiper Democratic Party leader Kalonzo Musyoka and Ford Kenya's Moses Wetangula al meeting at the Great Rift Valley Lodge.
Narc Kenya Leader Martha Karua was also in attendance.
They insisted that there was no wrong going on in the coalition and that they are still a united front, regardless of reports to the contrary.
" We are still together. That does not change. We are together for the betterment of the country and our people," Siaya Senator James Orengo said on behalf of the meeting.
Talk of an arrangement for the 2017 General Election was put aside for the 2 day retreat.
" We are here to state that the country needs better than the Jubilee Coalition is offering and we will fight to get it," he added.
There has been talk of a misunderstanding between the CORD leaders over who will be the 2017 coalition flag bearer.
All four leaders have already stated their desire to run for the presidency come 2017.
The retreat sought to seek ways of ensuring the Okoa Kenya Referendum is a success as well as plot ways to ensure the coalition offers more resistance to draconian laws from the Jubilee Coalition.
