12 April 2016, 08:12
Nakuru - The Orange Democratic party (ODM) is now accusing the Jubilee coalition of trying to buy FORD Kenya leader and CORD co-principal, Moses Wetang'ula out of the opposition coalition before next year's polls.
ODM Nakuru branch chairman, Peter Ole Osono said that the party is privy to a plot by Jubilee to pull Wetang'ula out of CORD at all costs.
Osono said Jubilee has promised Wetang'ula "some billions" if he decamps from CORD and vie for the presidency.
He added that Jubilee's main aim is to completely split Raila's votes in western Kenya by convincing Wetang'ula to be on the ballot alongside Amani National Congress leader, Musalia Mudavadi.

"We know they have promised Wetang'ula some billions if he decamps from CORD and vie for the presidency and they are working day and night to see that work," said Osono.
"They want Wetang'ula and Mudavadi to be on the ballot in 2017 as one way of splitting Raila's votes in western Kenya but the plan will fail," he added.
Osono spoke Monday in Nakuru town during an ODM branch officials meeting.
