Corridors of power:Cord renegade MP in trouble after Raila gave him a dressing down.

According to the scheme, Kamanda will be bundled out at the nomination stage, to give Mbogo a clear runway for takeoff in the general election. Mbogo, who is known for flashing dollars and expensive trips abroad, has already organized his strategic teams as well as logistical departments to crisscross Starehe constituency in the coming months. Our mole says Mbogo is playing his cards close to his chest, but is all set to
