10 September 2015, 16:53
Nairobi - The CORD Coalition has reacted with anger to an opinion poll which insinuated that persons who support the coalition are poorer than those supporting the Jubilee coalition.
The Poll released by IPSOS Synovate stated that 46% of CORD supporters earn less than KES 10,000 monthly while 39% of Jubilee Supporters earn less than the same amount.
The Poll further stated that in Western Kenya and Nyanza, which are CORD strongholds persons interviewed stated that one person in their households slept hungry.
The poll results have however generated anger from CORD leadership which has criticized the poll results.
CORD Communications guru Philip Etale says that the move by IPSOS and its CEO Tom Wolf was lacking in standards and immoral.
" Dear Tom Wolf, What has voting got to do with poverty... why did you base your research on one's political affiliation?," he posed.
" Tom Wolf, go to any part of Western Kenya and show me any family that lives on relief food, begs or sleeps hungry!!!," he added.
" CORD doesn't run government. So what do you expect it to do if those who voted
for Raila are poor. Being poor is a situation for everyone, " he added.
CORD further stated that it would release a statement from its leadership on the matter in the course of Thursday evening.
