Nakuru - The CORD coalition is afraid of naming its presidential candidate to battle it out with President Uhuru Kenyatta in the 2017 general election, a TNA official has claimed.
Nakuru TNA chairman, Harrison Muiruri claimed that CORD is not keen on nominating its candidate because they have already sensed defeat in the 2017 polls.
Speaking Tuesday in Nakuru town, Muiruri said that CORD is afraid of facing Jubilee at the ballot hence the delay in naming their flag bearer.
He said that CORD cannot manage the country if they cannot manage party affairs.
“The truth is that CORD is afraid of losing again because they know they will lose and that is why they are delaying naming their flag bearer in the 2017 polls,” said Muiruri.

“They are so much confused to a point that they cannot agree on who will be their flag bearer and such people cannot be trusted with the leadership of the country,” he said.
He challenged CORD coalition parties to learn from Jubilee and fold up to form one party.
“Everybody in CORD is speaking his own language because if they were reading from the same script, they would have agreed to fold up their individual parties and form one strong party like Jubilee,” he added.
CORD principals are under pressure both from within and without to name their presidential flag bearer with Raila, Kalonzo and Wetang'ula expressing interest in the seat.
President Uhuru Kenyatta will undoubtedly be Jubilee's presidential flag bearer in the 2017 polls.
