Nairobi - Why did CORD leader Raila Odinga miss Moses Wetang'ula's Presidential launch?
It has emerged that the CORD leader was informed in advance by his intelligence team that there would be chaos at Kakamega's Muliro gardens, the venue of the launch.
According to sources close to the former Prime Minister, the violence was the reason he absconded the launch.
He thus instead embarked on a trip to Tanzania where he is being hosted by President John Magufuli, a close ally of the CORD leader at his home.
" There was information that there would be violence so the party leader went to Tanzania instead," the source stated.
The violence at Muliro Gardens left many people injured after supporters of Ford Kenya chairman Wetang'ula and Governor Wycliffe Oparanya clashed with Police forced to fire teargas canisters.
