Cord principal Raila Odinga is a kingmaker.
His combination with Mombasa Governor Hassan Joho is a force to reckon with.
Kenya’s ambassador to Tanzania Chirau Ali Mwakwere’s entry into the Kwale gubernatorial race would have been inconsequential if he had not sought Raila and Joho's support.
When Joho said he will camp in Kwale until Governor Salim Mvurya is sent home, many wondered how this was going to happen.
Mwaker's move to declare interest in the seat has left Mvurya a troubled man.
There are many politicians who have done a lot for their people but their party affiliation has cost them greatly.
This is likely to be witnessed in Kwale in 2017.
When you transverse the county, you will find several projects initiated by the governor.
Despite the fact that Mvurya has an amazing performance scoreboard, it will be hard to stand the wave of Cord in the upcoming general election.
If you remember what Cord did in Bungoma County to ensure that Senator Moses Wetangula retains his seat, then you will know what it means to have Raila and Joho's support.
With the duo by his side, Mwakwere is going for nothing but a win.
