CORD will die before 2017 polls, says Jubilee leader

08 July 2016, 09:40 Jackson Okata

Nairobi - The CORD coalition is on its political deathbed and cannot be saved, the TNA Nakuru branch chairman Harrison Muiruri has said.

According to Muiruri, the resignation of top officials within the coalition is a clear indication that ODM which is a major stakeholder in CORD is dying, something he says will finish the entire coalition.

Muiruri said that the defection of members from CORD to Jubilee is unavoidable because most of them have seen the light.

Speaking Wednesday in Nakuru, Muiruri said that CORD will be dead by the time the country goes to the polls next year.

"You can see what is happening in ODM and that tells you that all is not well. ODM is finished and when ODM is finished there will be no CORD and I can tell you that CORD is on its deathbed because its main stakeholder is finished," said Muiruri.

"The defections we are witnessing from CORD to Jubilee will increase as we approach 2017," he said.

Muiruri defended Jubilee on accusations that it was buying members out of the CORD coalition, saying that what is happening is normal in politics.

"Politics is a game and in any game, the smart will always win and that is exactly what Jubilee is doing and will continue doing," he said.
