Jubilee using Wetangula to wreck CORD ship,claims ODM official

22 September 2016, 19:03

Nairobi - FORD Kenya leader Moses Wetangula is being used by the jubilee party operatives to wreck the CORD ship ahead of the 2017 general elections by issuing demands which are unrealistic.

ODM’s director of constitutional affairs Kipkorir Menjo claimed that Wetangula is looking for a reason and way out of CORD and that is why he has started coming up with outrageous demands.

Menjo said that Wetangula’s demand for the creation of a prime ministers position and fielding of individual candidates for individual parties is aimed at causing confusion within CORD.

Menjo said that it was suspect for Wetangula to come up with the demands a day after his co-principal and wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka called for joint nominations for all CORD affiliate parties and fielding of single coalition candidates during the 2017 general polls.

Speaking Thursday morning in Nakuru town,Menjo said that CORD should work with Musyoka’s proposal of fielding single candidates in all constituencies and counties as one of enhancing their chances of clinching more seats.

“Wetangula is working for some people and he is being used to wreck the CORD ship by making unattainable proposals. He can’t start taking of the prime ministers position now and each party fielding their own candidates when his co-principals are talking about having single candidates for the CORD coalition,” said Menjo.

“It seems he wants to cause tension and confusion in the coalition before bolting out and heading to jubilee,” he added.

Wetangulas’s party wants the CORD coalition to create the position of a prime minister of chief minister to cater for the third principal who will emerge third during the presidential nominations for the coalition.

He also wants individual parties within CORD to be allowed to field candidates in all counties except Nairobi and Mombasa.
