Bungoma - Bungoma Senator, Moses Wetang'ula has said Cord principals will remain united and support one of them for presidency in 2017.
He said they will stick together until the next polls and will not allow "outsiders" to divide them.
“We cannot afford to be divided as Cord principals because this will be like giving our opponents an early chance to beat us,” said Wetang'ula who spoke to the News24.
The Ford Kenya leader said anybody who thinks the coalition will disintegrate will be shocked.
“We are firmly together and intact. We will continue to be even stronger as we go to the next general election.”
Wetang'ula said as for now they will continue to play their role in ensuring the government improves the lives of Kenyans.

He said how they will choose the presidential candidate is their secret weapon they cannot disclose to the public now.
“We cannot go to Gikomba market and start telling Kenyans on how choose a candidate. We organized mechanism to handle the issue,” said Wetang’ula.
At the same time, he accused the Jubilee government of failing to address issues currently affecting Kenyans.
“It is sad that many people are still wallowing in abject poverty after close to five decades of independence and yet this government has done nothing to improve the lives of Kenyans,” said the CORD CO-Principal.
The Senate minority leader said Kenyans have many challenging issues which need to be addressed.
“The leaders should use their energies in the creation of jobs for the jobless youths, alleviate poverty, address health services and other issues that really bite Kenyans instead making politics,” said Wetangula.
He added that their platform for next polls would be issue-based rather than engaging in tribal politics which has backtracked development in the country.
“The issues affecting Kenyans will matter a lot in the next elections and the polls will not be based on tribal blocks or parties, but experience and professionalism,” said Wetangula.
He warned Kenyans against voting along tribal lines saying that would ruin the country.For the latest on national news, politics, sport, entertainment and more follow us on Twitter and like our Facebook page!
