Kenya: Cord Launches Joint Secretariat

Prime Minister Raila Odinga's presidential campaign secretariat was yesterday expanded to accommodate his partners in the Cord Alliance.

Andrew Mwavwa, who has been the head of strategy in the Kalonzo Musyoka for president secretariat, now becomes the deputy head of the Raila's team. Ken Wanyama, who has been a member of the Moses Wetangula presidential campaign secretariat, becomes the director in charge of strategic alliances and partnerships in the Raila campaign.

"The Raila Odinga Presidential Campaign Secretariat has been restructured to incorporate interests of partners in the CORD Coalition, enhance synergy and deliver victory for Kenya. These changes, which have been sanctioned by the three CORD principals and the CORD Executive Board, take effect immediately," Eliud Owalo, who is Raila's chief campaign manager and now head of the CORD team said in a statement.

Others are Ngunjiri Wambugu (Director, Political Affairs), Lang'at Kipkurui Lang'at (Director, Field Operations), Oduor Ong'wen (Director of Strategy, Policy and Research), Rosemary Kariuki (Political Mobilisation), Wafula Buke (Field Manager), Josephine Wandago (Women Affairs) and David Osiany (Youth Affairs).
