Karua will add value to CORD, Orengo says

Nairobi - The inevitable announcement has been made. Martha Karua is a part of the Coalition for Reforms and Democracy CORD coalition. But will she add any value to the flailing opposition ranks?
The Narc Kenya leader announced that she would join the opposition during the party retreat over the weekend during a CORD retreat in Naivasha town in the Rift Valley.
But will she add any value?
Observers think not.
She has no well known support or fan base and is yet to isolate the country's women to support her. Charity Ngilu failed too. Who will?
In short, Karua has no identity.
According to Siaya Senator James Orengo though, Karua's arrival will be great for CORD.
" We welcome here here. We have worked together before while in government and we look forward to continuing to work together," he said.
" She is excited about joining the coalition and will be vital going forward," he added.
Karua herself said that she had arrived at the best place to put the government in check.
" Change is needed for Kenyans and I believe being here will help in that regard," she added.
Karua had already previously stated that she supported the CORD coalition in the Okoa Kenya Referendum battle and was a part of the team that met US President Barack Obama during his visit to the country.
