Nairobi - CORD leaders Kalonzo Musyoka and Evans Kidero have met in Nairobi to discuss 2017 politics.
The two leaders, met at Kalonzo’s Karen residence in
Nairobi and discussed ways of ensuring that the CORD Coalition clinches majority seats in Nairobi.
It was especially so to discuss Kidero's strategy in winning and retaining his seat come the polls.
" The meeting was helpful. There was alot discussed including the strategy to help Kidero beat Jubilee in the 2017 polls and others," an aide to the Governor told News24.
Kidero was accompanied by deputy governor Jonathan Mueke.
The CORD Coalition has agreed that it will contest the elections in Nairobi as one force in-order to help it take on the strong looking Jubilee force within the city.
" Both know that Nairobi will be a fierce battleground and are preparing in earnest for the hostilities," the aide added.
Kalonzo is said to also be a keen part of the CORD Coalition ahead of the polls, despite stories linking him with quitting the coalition.
" Kalonzo is happy in CORD and he discussed strategy that will help the coalition win and not other things like the media has been reporting," the aide completed.
CORD won only one of the big three seats in Nairobi in the 2013 polls, that of Governor, having missed out on the Senate and Women rep seats and will be looking to make more inroads in the coming polls.
