told Coalition for Reforms and Democracy (CORD) supporters to stop
mourning and identify a new leader to steer the party to the future.
Speaking at a function in Kakamega County on Wednesday, Oparanya who
is among senior CORD lieutenants, said Raila Odinga’s presidential
dream is completely dead adding that he is a spent cartridge.
He challenged CORD supporters to reconsider an appropriate replacement
of Raila Odinga as soon as possible to prevent the alliance from
“When your child dies you will mourn. After burial, the honourable
thing to do is settle down and get another child,” Oparanya said.
“CORD supporters should be steadfast and chart the political destiny
of the party,” Oparanya added.
He said Raila Odinga’s third attempt to clinch the Presidency on March
4th failed and it is high time CORD supporters identify a new leader
who will attract votes from all the 42 tribes in Kenya.
Pressure has also been mounting on Raila Odinga, who is a seasoned
loser, to give way to fresh leadership in ODM.
