Nairobi - Kajiado Governor David Nkedianye will decamp from the CORD
Coalition to the Jubilee fold ahead of the 2017 General Elections.
Nkedianye who was voted in on an ODM ticket in 2013 is
understood to have told close friends that he will quit CORD for Jubilee.
The reasons for are yet to be known.
“He is leaving CORD for Jubilee,” a close aide who asked not
to be named told News24.
Nkedianye has in the past lamented the cost of being in the
opposition at the expense of his people.
“Development is in the Jubilee Coalition. My Coalition is
not built for that,” he added.
Nkedianye, according to sources is however afraid of losing
his seat with the Jubilee fold said to be very friendly to the Maasai people
who he represents.
In the Maa region, only Kajiado Central is an ODM zone thanks to Memusi Kanchori who was also in the past a member of the Jubilee Coalition.
Nkedianye is said to be jittery over the proposition of former Interior CS Joseph Nkaissery to run for his seat come the 2017 polls thus the move to jump to Jubilee.
He is said to be uncomfortable with facing Ole Lenku whilst on the ODM ticket as the former CS is very popular in the region.
