Tension in CORD as Wetangula fate to be known Tuesday

18 January 2016, 18:21 William Korir

Nairobi - There is tension amongst the CORD Coalition and its supporters as the verdict awaiting Bungoma Senator Moses Wetangula is set to be announced Tuesday.

The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commision IEBC announced that the decision will be made Tuesday at noon at the Milimani Law Courts in Nairobi.

Wetangula has been accused by the Supreme Court as well as other courts of voter bribery.

If the IEBC agrees that he indeed bribed voters during the March 2013 General Elections, he will be stricken off the voters list by the IEBC which means he will automatically lose his seat.

If that happens, then the CORD Coalition will be left to have to do without one of their key leaders, with Wetangula the main man for the opposition in western Kenya.

Wetangula's team led by lawyer James Orengo says that the CORD co-principal cannot be barred from the voters book because he has already gone through a by election which he won.

They say that the election meant that he had been allowed to continue as an elected leader of which the IEBC cannot change at this juncture as it would be stopping the will of the people.

If he is barred, CORD expects to appeal the decision.

" We are confident that the decision will be vindicated and that our brother will be set free," Tongaren MP Eseli Simiyu told News24.
