Why Wetang'ula might leave CORD
13 April 2016, 19:05
Nairobi - The Jubilee Coalition is willing to hand FORD Kenya boss Moses Wetang'ula a number or perks to leave the CORD Coalition.
It is understood that the Jubilee leadership has asked Water and Irrigation CS Eugene Wamalwa to deal with the negotiation which will see the former Foreign Affairs Minister jump ship.
Wetang'ula is currently disillusioned about his place in CORD after a series of events which have indicated that he is not top priority.
They stem from CORD leader Raila Odinga missing his Presidential launch.
According to sources, the Jubilee Coalition is keen on the Luhya vote and is certain Wetang'ula can deliver it come 2017.
They are keen to make him Majority Senate leader if he joins and will have a number of his close allies handed cabinet appointments.
Wetang'ula is not new to having an alliance with the government, having been a part of the Party of National Unity in the past whilst other Luhyas voted for Odinga.
" Wetang'ula is a serious prospect. The President and DP are keen on having him in the Coalition," the Jubilee source told News24.
CORD leader Odinga is said to be trying his best to ensure that the FORD Kenya boss remains in CORD but with serious offers on the table, might be faced with the serious prospect of losing him.
