The CORD yet again lost to Jubilee in the senate in the amendments regarding election laws.
Jubilee senators passed the amendments which had been approved by Jubilee MPs in the lower house in acrimonious circumstances.
However, this was largely aided by a section of the opposition senators who supported the Jubilee side.
Among them is Kisii county Senator Chris Obure.

The senator was not in attendance during the special sitting, something that was seen as boycotting the sitting to help Jubilee win.
However, he had early on delegated his voting powers to ODM nominated senator Janet Ong’era.
But on this particular day, Speaker Ekwe Ethuro announced that Obure had instead given his powers to Jubilee nominated Senator Hosea Ochwang’i.

Jubilee won by 24 why CORD got 19.
Obure says he does not regret his decision.
He said he was compelled to support Jubilee because ODM has despised him and is working to push him out of the party.
He says even efforts to meet Raila Odinga have not yielded fruit. He accuses Ong’era and Governor James Ongwae of hatching a plot to push him out of the party.
