Raila wary of Waiguru ahead of 2017 polls

10 February 2016, 17:57 William Korir

Nairobi - CORD leader Raila Odinga is wary of the impact of Anne Waiguru to the 2017 General Elections.

The CORD leader is said to have been in consultations with his planning team to assess the viability of Waiguru's supposed challenge to Evans Kidero come the 2017 polls.

Waiguru, with the alleged backing of State House will stand for the Governors seat come 2017.

She will face off with a compromised Kidero who has been caught up in a number of scandals including the latest one, a serious Supreme Court bribery scandal over the 2013 polls.

Kidero is not in the nest of shape and Raila knows it.

" Kidero has not been in the best form and Raila knows it. He is working on a way to deal with Waiguru as well as help Kidero," a source close to the CORD leader told News24.

Waiguru has also started working on her campaign while Kidero is still fighting to clear his name which is why Raila has stepped forward to defend Kidero in recent times.

" Kidero deserves a fair hearing over the bribery allegations facing him," he said, even as Deputy President William Ruto rallied Jubilee supporters to vote him out of office.

Kidero is alleged to have given Supreme Court Judge Philip Tunoi a KES 200 million bribe to rule in his favour in an election petition in 2014.

Mr Odinga’s spokesman, Mr Dennis Onyango, said: “Raila recognises that Chief Justice Willy Mutunga acted swiftly and initiated a legal process. Any other position on this matter will serve no purpose," he stated.

With Jubilee vultures circling for the kill, CORD will be forced to take serious action.

" Nairobi is important and Kidero is also very important to the coalition. He will be defended and protected as much as can be," the source added.
