CORD vow to continue with Raila homecoming despite ban

27 May 2014, 17:22 William Korir

Nairobi - The Coalition for Reform and Democracy CORD has vowed to continue with the planned Raila Odinga homecoming party despite the ban by the police.

The coalition, through principal Moses Wetangula said that it would continue with the planned rallies despite the order by Inspector General of Police David Kimaiyo to ban any parties, rallies and gatherings due to the current security situation.

" The planned party will go on as we had arranged despite the directive and we view the move by the police as a way of frustrating and killing democracy, he said in Nairobi.

Siaya senator James Orengo described the move as backward and undemocratic.

" The government is slowly taking us back to the 1990's, a time we thought we had left behind, he said.

" The one party dictatorship ended in 1992, we shall not be cowed by anyone. The constitution does not support IG on this

On his part, Gem MP Jakoyo Midiwo said that the planned rally as non- negotiable and urged the police to instead provide security.

" It is the work of the police to provide relevant security for the event, he said.

Kimaiyo has stated that the reason for banning the rallies is due to the current state of security in the country.
