CORD desperate ahead of 2017 polls, says Duale

12 January 2016, 20:59 Dennis Omidoh

Nairobi - National Assembly’s Majority Leader, Aden Duale has said the Coalition for Reforms and Democracy (CORD) is desperate ahead of the 2017 polls.

Reacting to Cord’s claims Jubilee was being favoured by the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) in the planned voter registration exercise, Duale said the opposition has already sensed defeat ahead of the 2017 General Elections.

“The statement by CORD is an unnecessary sideshow to divert attention from Senator Moses Wetangula’s case, and to intimidate the IEBC.

 “CORD is clueless and panicked. It does not possess the ideological stature, strategic nous and stamina required to engage Kenyans,” Duale said on Tuesday.

He said the opposition should have used formal avenues to air out its concerns, instead of spreading rumours and propaganda.

“In any event, CORD has many lawful avenues to canvas its concerns. Rumours, speculation and scandal-mongering are the poorest choices.

“It is common knowledge that CORD rarely takes itself seriously enough to reflect on its mandate and mission,” Duale added.

He said CORD should be leave the IEBC to carry out its functions as stated out in the Kenyan Constitution.

“The constitution is clear on the IEBC functions, which include the registration of citizens as voters and the regular revision of voters’ roll,” Duale said.

He urged IEBC to keenly carry out the planned exercise countrywide, as Kenyans gear up for the coming polls.

“We ask the IEBC to be extra vigilant and eliminate all cases of voting by dead citizens, which has been rampant in some areas.

“Kenyans expect that the commission will fully discharge its constitutional mandate and deliver credible elections in 2017,” Duale said.
