Narc party leader Charity Ngilu on Monday ditched the Coalition for Reform and Democracy (Cord) for Jubilee coalition saying the former declined her request to hold joint presidential nomination."I have moved out of the ODM because they refused to accept my request to have a joint nomination to choose the coalition's flag-bearer," she said. Cord comprises of ODM, Wiper, Ford Kenya and 11 other parties whereas the Jubilee alliance has TNA, URP and UDF parties.
Ngilu accused Prime Minister Raila Odinga and Vice President Kalonzo Musyoka of betrayal in the pre-election pact. Mrs Ngilu said she was back to the TNA/URP/UDF coalition which brings together two Deputy Prime Ministers Uhuru Kenyatta, Musalia Mudavadi and Eldoret North MP William Ruto.
Ngilu, who is also the Water minister said that she will seek presidential nomination in the Jubilee alliance.
While addressing supporters at Wote town in Makueni County, Ngilu said she was surprised that VP Musyoka has settled for the position of running mate in Cord.
"I will take on Uhuru and Mudavadi for the joint presidential nomination and not the running mate slot as what Kalonzo has opted for," she said.Ngilu also said Kenyans should brace themselves for tough polls on March 4, 2013."This is going to be one of the toughest elections since independence. It is going to be a battle that will separate the boys from men and girls from the women. It is not going to be child's play," she said.She also blamed the top leadership for heaping responsibilities of the 2008 post election violence on Uhuru Kenyatta and William Ruto."It is common knowledge that Uhuru and Ruto were acting for President Kibaki and the PM in matters they are accused of," she said."Why take the four when the real masterminds are free?" she asked. What was the reason for taking the four suspects to The Hague when the real culprits are free?" asked Ngilu.
