07 July 2014, 19:03
Nairobi - The CORD coalition will push for a referendum to solve key national issues it announced during the Saba Saba day rally.
The referendum will seek to change the composition of public appointments as well as seek the disbandment of the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commision IEBC.
This was announced during the Saba Saba day rally at Nairobi's Uhuru Park grounds by leader Raila Odinga.
" We will form a committee to seek ways to build a legitimate push for a national referendum on certain matters of national importance, he said.
The coalition also said it would look to force through key issues that are contained in a list of demands tabled during the rally.
" We do not believe in violence but in ensuring that we seek and find changes needed in our country in the right way, Raila added.
There had earlier been calls for a night vigil at Uhuru Park but Raila insisted that his supporters go home in peace.
" I prefer that we all go home in peace and not cause violence, he said.
Later on though, there were several reports of violence in Nairobi and its environs as CORD supporters headed home after the rally.
