Kidero referendum stand poses problem for CORD

17 September 2014, 14:03 William Korir

Nairobi - The CORD coalition is seeking Nairobi Governor Evans Kidero's support for the upcoming referendum.

Kidero has so far stated openly that he is not for the referendum at the moment, saying that it is prudent to try other solutions first before heading to a referendum.

" We must look for other solutions first. We must try other ways first before we end up at the referendum stage. That is my view, he has previously stated.

He has been supported by Migori Governor Okoth Obado, who is also not sure a referendum is important for the moment.

CORD leaders though, see Kidero as a key member of the coalition and as a person who can sway support on the referendum.

And according to sources, CORD will meet in the coming weeks to look for a way of putting their house in order.

" We are looking to have a united front including the likes of Kidero and others who have so far not declared their support for the referendum, the source said.

Currently, CORD leaders Raila Odinga and Kalonzo Musyoka are away on trips, Odinga in Germany and Musyoka in the UK.

Both will be back next week to spur support for the referendum from within.

" They will be back in the coming week, Raila's spokesman Dennis Onyango said of the whereabouts of the two leaders.
