Muslims Declare Support for Raila and CORD

23 Dec


The CORD alliance presidential candidate Raila Odinga has secured the backing of a section of Muslim clerics, rekindling the 2007 memories of a controversial Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Muslim community. According to Citizen News footage, the Muslim clerics told the Prime Minister that there was no need of an MoU, but insisted that he must ensure full implementation of the constitution, to assure all Kenyans their rightful share of the national cake.

The CORD line up, a day after its unveiling, challenged its opponents in the Kibaki succession contest to conduct issue-based campaigns, and desist from politics of name calling.

I congratulate our brothers from the Muslim faith for standing with the one and only one man among those seeking the presidency they have the confidence to know will lead bila ubaguzi against any Kenyan and will make sure the interests of the Muslim community are in the front burner and will remain there and better as they have always been in Raila’s order of priorities.

Speaking on the occasion of this visit by the Muslim clerics and scholars at Raila’s residence, the head of the delegation Sheikh Mohamed Warfa said to the PM, “we are assuring you the support for the presidency of the republic of Kenya and we’ll be able to go at the village level and make sure every Muslim knows hears, knows and is ready to  support and vote for the CORD presidency in the name of the Rt. Hon. Prime Minister Raila Amolo Odinga.”

    Muslim support really taints your image harder than ICC. America are wary of Islam friendly leaders. Taker that to the bank. it is called Islamophobia, and am afraid Jubilee could be overaching to net the NEP block. Point is Raila as usual is buasy cannibalizing himself
