CORD sues over Uhuru's rejection of Raila retirement benefits

30 October 2015, 18:37 William Korir

Nairobi - The CORD coalition has gone to court to contest the rejection of several Bills by President Uhuru Kenyatta.

The coalition has complained about the continued rejection of the Bills by the President, arguing that he does not have the power to overrule the National Assembly.

They claim and named 9 Bills Uhuru has allegedly interfered with deliberately.

One of the Bills that they mentioned was the Retirement Benefits Bill which they say the President added input on instead of simply sharing his reservations.

" What we want is a declaration that the President’s role is limited to making reservations, but not sharing legislative duties through his own amendments or insertion of fresh clauses to what has been passed by Parliament," CORD said in a statement Friday.

Lawyer Anthony Oluoch representing the Coalition said that by making recommendations, the President had in-fact moved to take the role of the legislature which is illegal.

" What the President has been doing is illegal and should not be allowed," he added.

CORD says that Uhuru added clauses in rejecting the Retirement Bill which was to deny CORD leaders Raila Odinga and Kalonzo Musyoka their benefits stating that they are still continuing in active Politics.
