CORD mission to impeach Uhuru still on says Raila

30 September 2015, 15:30 William Korir

Nairobi - The mission by the CORD coalition to impeach President Uhuru Kenyatta is still on, coalition leader Raila Odinga has said.

The coalition wants Uhuru impeached for failing to enact a court order stating that teachers be handed a 50/60% payrise.

Despite facing ridicule from the ruling Jubilee coalition, CORD leader Odinga says that the motion will still go on.

Find the full speech below

We, the members of the Coalition for Reforms and Democracy (CORD) Parliamentary Group met today at the ODM Headquarters under the leadership of our able Principals the Rt. Hon. Raila Odinga, H.E. Hon. Stephen Kalonzo Musyoka and Senator Moses Wetang’ula to chart the coalition’s legislative agenda in this last sitting of the 3rd session of the 11th Parliament. During the meeting, the members resolved as follows;

1. That we continue to stand in solidarity with the teachers of this country during this period when there is uncertainty over their pursuit for a salary increment. We, just like other Kenyans feel their pain and will continue to press the government to honour the 50-60 percent salary increase which was proposed by the government through the Teachers Service Commission. The Can’t Pay, Won’t Pay attitude is not and will not be the solution to the problem.

2. Our planned, Occupy Harambee House initiative every Tuesday which we declared during last week’s Uhuru Park rally with the aim of compelling the Jubilee government to honour the court decision to implement the teachers’ pay increase is on. We however suspended it to allow the court process to go on uninterrupted as we believe in the rule of law and order.

3. We are fully behind Hon. John Mbadi’s motion to table an amendment to the Appropriations Act to source funds from non priority areas in the National Budget and make them available to pay teachers. Similarly, we challenge the Jubilee administration to respect the independence of the Judiciary and stop their covert actions aimed at intimidating and or influencing judges.

4. We are on course with our Motion of Impeachment against President Uhuru Kenyatta for his continued violation of the law and the constitution. Our grounds for this motion are concrete and substantive, based on clear facts and the constitution.

5. CORD fully supports the Equalization Fund Bill which seeks to correct the historical injustices in the specific Counties identified by the Commission for Revenue Allocation. We shall rally all our troupes in Parliament to support the bill when it is brought back to the House.

As the government in waiting, our opponents have been telling us to provide alternative solutions to a myriad of problems facing Kenyans, we are doing it now and we shall not tire. CORD urges the public to stand with us in our pursuit to make Kenya a JUST society and a country which is governed by the RULE of LAW and not the rule of the Jungle.
