‘Streets are the way to go’ – Raila Odinga
The Coalition for Reforms and Democracy (CORD) leader Raila Odinga has maintained that they will take to the streets on Monday if the President does not agree to negotiate on the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) issue.
Speaking in Gusishi, Timau in Meru County during the burial ceremony of the late Coronal Henry Muthee Kathurima, Raila said that CORD would not agree to have the issue in Parliament saying the same Jubilee MPs forced EACC commissioners led by Mumo Matemu to resign.
“Which Constitution did they use? They blackmailed them to date, they have not told us the crimes Matemo committed that made him get hounded out of office. They abused the Constitution,” claimed Raila.
Raila cited article one of the Constitution which he accused the Jubilee government of denying the people of Kenya their rights.
Raila further maintained that CORD has already appointed its five negotiating members from both houses and wondered why Jubilee was unwilling to nominate its team.
“Time has come for Kenyans to really come together and talk together. There is need to negotiate this matter out of Parliament,” said Raila.
