03 October 2016, 18:28
Nairobi - Jomvu MP Badi Twalib has rubbished claims that he is seeking to leave the CORD Coalition and is happy in the opposition.
Twalib was elected MP via CORD and the Wiper Party in the 2013 polls and despite other leaders in the coalition seeking to jump ship to the Jubilee wing, Twalib says he is staying put.
" There is no leaving CORD. I am here to stay," he told News24.
He added that he was happy to be in the coalition and help force through Kalonzo Musyoka as the CORD Coalition candidate for the 2017 elections.
" The best candidate for the coalition is Kalonzo but we are a democratic party and will negotiate with our partners in CORD on the best way forward," he added.
There is expected to be an announcement on the CORD flag bearer either at the end of the year or early 2017.
Over 8 CORD leaders from the Coastal region have recently jumped ship from the CORD Coalition to the Jubilee Party.
