Opposition CORD cries foul

By Kevin Wachira

CORD leader Raila Odinga has claimed there is a deliberate plot to rig the 2017 general elections

In what appears to be a change of tact by the CORD leader, Raila in the renewed onslaught on government alleges that the government is using its numbers in Parliament to muzzle independent institutions and offices.

Barely 18 months to the general elections CORD leader Raila Odinga is raising transparency questions over the Democratic process and now claims there is an attempt to alter the outcome of the forthcoming polls.

After a string of accusations against the government including proceeds of the Eurobond, the opposition leader now claims that senior members of the jubilee government have hatched a plot to rig the election in an elaborate plan that has witnessed a host of corruption scandals

Though the opposition failed to substantiate its claims, it alleges that numerous fundraising across the country by members of the jubilee alliance was testament to a plot to tilt public perception over its performance

In what was dubbed as the opposition’s state of the nation, Raila faulted recent legislations that he said were intent on reversing democratic gains realized over the years.

And with the Jubilee Party engaged in a charm offensive in regions perceived to be opposition strongholds, the CORD coalition is warning its affiliate parties against joining the outfit.
