No, Cord will not hold parallel Mashujaa Day celebrations
The opposition coalition has dismissed media reports that claimed it plans to hold a parallel Mashujaa Day celebrations in Makueni County.
The media reports claimed that the opposition planned to counter the official celebrations to be led by President Uhuru Kenyatta next week Thursday in Machakos County.
Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) communication director Philip Etale on Tuesday dismissed the reports through his official Twitter account.
CORD has not planned any parallel Mashujaa Day rally as is being propagated by some people on this forum.

President Uhuru Kenyatta had last year announced that Machakos County will host this year’s October 20 Mashujaa Day celebrations.
