Kuria confessions will win Jubilee 2017 vote
14 October 2015, 19:40
Nairobi - With the confessions by Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria being taken as law by Jubilee coalition members and Kenyans, any chance that the current government will not be in power come the 2017 General Elections is gone.
According to observers, the ploy by Kuria and the Jubilee command has helped kill any lingering hopes that the CORD coalition has of winning the next poll.
Kuria has accused himself, together with CORD leader Raila Odinga and NARC Kenya leader Martha Karua of fixing Deputy President William Ruto at the Hague based International Criminal Court ICC.
Both parties have denied but according to political observers, the damage has already been done.

" The damage has already been done. It was a great ploy by Jubilee," he states.
" The opposition leadership had already been demonized in the Rift Valley in 2012 as well as 2013 and with these allegations, it will go further. No one will want to listen to Raila and Karua in those regions."
" Kuria and the Jubilee leadership has played the best card and Kuria apologizing will see him regarded as a good person and a fantastic soul."
" If you ask me, the opposition will do very well to come back from this setback."
Joshua Kipng'etich: Political analyst
" Kuria has played hero in the end for admitting the 'truth' and CORD will be seen as the enemies in this case."
" They have in other words agreed to take the villain because Kuria has admitted he did it and apologized."
" In the Jubilee support regions, they will be firmly behind the duo in power, while in the minds of those who need to be swayed, the bad persons are in the opposition."
" Well played by the Jubilee strategists."
