CORD, KANU working on coalition deal

20 February 2016, 18:57 William Korir

Nairobi - The CORD coalition is working on a deal to join up with KANU and end the Jubilee Coalition's dominance of Rift Valley politics.

Sources at CORD's think-tank told News24 Saturday that there is a possible deal in the offing which will see the two work together to kill the Jubilee influence in the Rift.

KANU has come in leaps and bounds in recent months and is gaining popularity among a disenfranchised group of Kalenjins.

The open rebellion by Jubilee leaders and supporters in the region to the defacto Kalenjin leader DP William Ruto has been evident and it seems it will not end soon.

" The plan is to split votes in the Rift. It is very feasible and will work to the opposition's favour come 2017," the CORD source told News24.

The coalition is willing to work with KANU and especially Bomet Governor Isaac Ruto to kill Jubilee, who are badly thought off in the region thanks to their lack of serious development.

Jubilee though is not at the moment atleast worried about it.

" The plan will fail. The two are in the past. Jubilee is the present and future," Elgeyo Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen says.

The two will hope to use the Kericho by election in March to execute their plan and are confident of doing so.

" Watch Kericho. That is the way to go," the source added.
