Raila launches e-fundraising to mobilise resources ahead of 2017 elections
Cord leader Raila Odinga has started a resource mobilisation drive as he prepares to make his fourth stab at the presidency next year.
Irked by what Cord terms “massive corruption” by the Jubilee administration, Raila aims to pool funds as he prepares to face-off with President Uhuru Kenyatta in the August 7, 2017 elections.
The Cord leader has appointed former Kisumu West MP Ken Nyagudi as the director of E-Fundraising and Resource Mobilisation. In a letter dated May 23, Raila told Nyagudi: “This appointment requires you to liaise with many stakeholders in and outside Kenya.You will also be required to brief me regularly and work closely with my secretariat.”
Cord leaders told Jubilee to brace for a tough contest next year. Gem MP Jakoyo Midiwo during an interview on NTV on Tuesday said they will be aiming for nothing less than the presidency.
