How Meru elders snubbed Raila

24 May 2016, 19:19 William Korir

Nairobi - In a meeting between Meru elders and CORD leader Raila Odinga, the former Prime Minister was told that under no uncertain terms will the community vote for him in the 2017 elections.


Raila visited Meru early this month in a bid to win over the community ahead of the 2017 General Elections but was met with a brick wall.


Elders he held talks with were every hostile and told him to seek votes elsewhere.


“The elders told Raila that Meru has been taken care of by the Jubilee government and that the community will vote for President Uhuru Kenyatta come 2017,” a source privy to the meeting told News24.


The elders believe that the CORD leader will lose the 2017 polls and that will leave the community alienated form development projects.


“They were very clear. We are in Jubilee to stay. Maybe next time,” the source added.


Raila is gunning for election come 2017 and is looking to areas which he does not traditionally have support for votes such as Meru and Embu.
