Malindi - The Coalition for Reforms and Democracy (CORD) rebels in the coast are set to launch a major challenge for the opposition in the coming Malindi by-election.
The rebels led by the Coast Parliamentary Group Chairman, Gideon Mung’aro have vowed to give ODM a difficult moment in Malindi by-election come March 7, 2016.
More than 15 members of the Coast Parliamentary Group will hold a major rally on Saturday at Kijiwetanga Primary school in Malindi to announce which direction the coast region block takes in the 2017 general election.
The meeting will be part of a campaign ahead of the by-election where they are expected to back a JAP candidate for the parliamentary seat.

The Kilifi North MP has said that the coast shall no longer be taken for granted. He further noted that it is time for the coast to take charge of Kenyan leadership come 2017.
“We want to take a direction that will unite the people of this region, we are fed up!” Mung’aro said while addressing a crowd in Furunzi.
Since announcing his bid for the Kilifi top seat, Mung’aro has been having bitter moments with the sitting Governor Amason Kingi. Mung’aro has blamed Kingi for failing to bring development in the County.
He has also labeled CORD as an anti-development party. But Kingi is steadfast that the opposition will lead all way in the Malindi by-election.
