Nairobi, Kenya: CORD and Jubilee alliances have convened parallel meetings in Nairobi on Wednesday that will bring together recently elected leaders.

Coincidentally both teams are scheduled to have the meeting at KICC, although with separate agendas. This scenario is likely to cause drama and confusion as newly elected leaders may find themselves in the rival’s meeting.

KICC however has enough space to host the two meeting without necessitating a clash on the usage of the common venue.  Cord had earlier indicated that they will be meeting at the Thika Road based Kenya School of Monetary Studies, but it’s not clear why they changed venue.

“CORDelected leaders i.e. Governors elect, Senators elect, MPs elect and Women Representatives elect will tomorrow morning at 10am converge in the City at KICC for the first ever joint meeting,” a statement from the Cord secretariat read last evening.

The meeting will be graced by the three principals Raila Odinga, Kalonzo Musyoka and Moses Wetangula.

On Tuesday, Lands minister James Orengo said their meeting will be used as bonding and get to know each other session for the elected leaders.

CORD is also planning to use the meeting to brief the leaders on the impending petition to contest Uhuru’s declaration as president.

Sources have intimated that the coalition is planning to file their cases on Friday after receiving all the necessary documentation required to file the petition.

The Raila-led coalition last week said they will not recognize Uhuru’s election citing what they termed as flaws and anomalies that marred the March 4 polls, and subsequent tallying process.

During the meeting, the leaders will be taken through CORD’s grievances so that they can understand and take it to the people (supporters).

“The leaders will return to the grassroots well aware of why the coalition is moving to the Supreme Court, they’re the ones to explain to our supporters,” a senior cord member said.

On the other hand, Jubilee has also summoned MPs, Senators, and Women Representatives-elect to a joint parliamentary group meeting that will be chaired by president-elect Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto.
