Cord Co-principals during the launch of Kalonzo’s website.
The Cord co-principals yesterday warned DP William Ruto not to be deceived that TNA will support him in 2022. The leaders said they have been victims of political deceit after supporting former President Mwai Kibaki twice.

He was referring to the now-collapsed ICC cases against President Kenyatta, Ruto and journalist Joshua Sang.

He said he is writing a book about his life that will also expose deceitful politics. Ford Kenya leader Moses Wetang’ula said the struggle to liberate Kenya has just started
