TNA rules out CORD support for its Othaya candidate

14 April 2014, 17:12 Joseph Njung’eh

Othaya -  The National Alliance (TNA) Party will not allow the opposition CORD Alliance's MPs to campaign for the TNA Othaya by-election candidate Mary Wambui.

TNA Party Chairman, Johnson Sakaja said it would be against the Political Parties Act for the CORD Alliance to campaign for the TNA candidate as the law prohibits a party member from furthering the cause of a rival party.

A number of the opposition CORD alliance's MP's had expressed a desire to campaign for Wambui, citing recognition of her leadership qualities.

None of the CORD Alliance affiliate parties has fielded a candidate in the by-election.

Sakaja, speaking during the campaign trail in Othaya, said it will be wrong for the CORD alliance to join the TNA team and start campaigning for Wambui. 

Two months ago, several MP's from Cord had expressed interests of campaigning for Wambui who is seeking re-election.

Sakaja, a nominated MP, also warned some of TNA's elected leaders in Othaya who are supporting a candidate from a rival party that they will face disciplinary action.

“I have received reports that there are elected leaders on a TNA party ticket who are supporting a DP party candidate. He or she should know that disciplinary measures will be taken against them. We shall also write letters to them,” said Sakaja. 

Sakaja was accompanied by MPs Kabando wa Kabando, James Mathenge (Kanini-Kega), Alice Wahome, politician Stanley Livondo and Kisumu nominated Senator Joy Gwendo.

They expressed confidence that Wambui will be victorious at the by-election.
