We Are Ready To Ditch ODM For Disrespecting Wetangula, Wiper Threatens
Raila was expected to attend the much-hyped launch of CORD co-principal Moses Wetang’ula presidential bid but he, instead, skipped the function and flew to Tanzania to visit President John Magufuli.
He went on to say that Raila has created the impression that CORD is splitting. He was quoted by a section of the media saying:
"It is demeaning for him to have gone for a holiday in Tanzania and missed the event,"
"He ought not to have missed the function."
The Wiper Secretary General asked the former Prime Minister to unify his troops if the coalition was going to mount a formidable challenge to the ruling Jubilee coalition.
Kakamega Governor and ODM deputy leader Wycliffe Oparanya does not see eye to with Senator Boni Khalwale, who is eyeing the gubernatorial seat in the forthcoming general elections.
Oparanya had opposed Wetangula presidential bid to be held at Masinde Muliro in Kakamega, claiming that it was an ODM zone.
Omar urged the Premier to treat other coalition partners as equals and not juniors:
"There is no junior party in CORD and partners must embrace negotiation in making decisions concerning the coalition"
Orengo has come to the defense of Raila stating that the CORD leader skipped the event after being informed that it would be marred with violence.
