07 July 2014, 13:41
Nairobi - CORD leaders will not be personally liable for any chaos, damages caused as regards the Saba Saba day rally, the high court has ruled.
The ruling was made Monday morning after CORD moved to court as a matter of urgency to argue against a ruling made by the government that they would be to blame for any damage caused.
They argued that the ruling was unconstitutional and unlawful, saying that any member of the public has the right to a public gathering.
Added to that, they insisted that by handing them the liability, in-case of any, the government would be passing on responsibility of handling matters security over to them which is their job.
Justice Isaac Lenaola agreed with them and thus suspended the government order.
The CORD leaders have insisted on the Saba Saba rally, this despite calls from many to suspend the rally due to the tension in the country.
The rally is set to kick off this afternoon at the Uhuru Park grounds.
The key agenda will be to speak on matters freedom, insecurity and many others currently blighting the country.
