Top Raila aide quits CORD

04 March 2014, 17:58 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - A top aide to former Prime Minister Raila Odinga has quit the CORD coalition, citing irreparable differences for his move.

Eliud Owalo, who run Raila's campaign in the 2013 elections has quit the party and coalition over what he described as rabid in-fighting.

In a letter addressed to the former PM by Owalo, lack of freedom to express himself, the conduct of Raila's cousin and ODM bigwig Jakoyo Midiwo and other mitigating circumstances led to his departure.

" I have in the recent past faced persistent but unwarranted attacks from your cousin Jakoyo Midiwo; informed primarily by what I believe is his desire for unlimited and unfettered political space around you”, said Owalo.

“After a lot of soul searching and with the specific intention of creating room for Jakoyo and his ilk; I have decided to withdraw my services to the CORD coalition and is leadership with immediate effect,” he added.

It is understood that the recent ODM elections broke the camel's back for Owalo, who felt that he was increasingly left outside of Raila's main decision making organ and as a result the recent failures on the ODM leaders' part.
