CORD rebels retreat in Mombasa
06 November 2014, 20:55
Nairobi - A group of perceived CORD coalition rebels have retreated to the coastal city of Mombasa for a supposed meeting to chart their way forward.
The group, led by Budalangi MP Ababu Namwamba and seconded my Machakos Governor Dr Alfred Mutua, former party whip Gideon Mung'aro and embattled Executive Director Magerer Lang'at were pictured at a Mombasa hotel Thursday.
The four, all currently at cross purposes with their respective parties are rumoured to be meeting to chart the way forward in their current predicament.
Ababu is rumoured to be keen on starting a new party in Western Kenya or joining a new force after falling out with party leader Raila Odinga due to the botched elections earlier in the year.
Mutua on the other hand is said to work with the Jubilee coalition closer than he does with the CORD coalition.
Mung'aro has campaigned against CORD and ODM initiatives since he was removed as party whip, while Magerer is also accused of being a Jubilee coalition sympathetic.
The four though, according to sources are not in Mombasa to discuss CORD business.
" They are here on their own personal businesses and not anything politics," an aide of Mutua's told News24.
The photo of the four though, elicited varying comments on social media, with most stating that they are sure the four are meeting to strategize on the current state of the CORD coalition.
And it is also likely to draw attention to themselves, considering the fragile relationship they hold with party leaders.
