Elders fault CORD's call for referendum

21 August 2013, 13:39 Wilshere

Rift Valley council of Elders has quashed calls for referendum by CORD leader Raila Odinga saying it is untimely for the country to be holding another election.

The elders said that CORD leaders should stop politicising the devolution issue adding that the country cannot afford to slip back to another referendum.

'Raila is known for his double standards'

Speaking on Tuesday in Nakuru, the council of elder’s spokesperson Gilbert Kabage said that the former prime minister is known for his double standards in the past and thus he should stop misleading the public.

“Raila should stop agitating for another referendum because at this time, all that Kenyans wants is development and not things to do with devolution which is being politicised,” he said.

Kabage took Raila to task asking him to explain what he had done for Kenyans when he was the prime minister.

Electorates are dissatisfied with Raila's activism

He added that Kenyans have been ruled by four governments which have democratically been elected by the people, and that he has lost thrice an indication that the electorates are dissatisfied with his activism instead of leadership.

“Raila should know that Kenya has over 40 million people and his partisan interests should not be made to cause mayhem and conflicts where Kenyans are expecting reforms and improved living standards from their government,” Kabage said.

The elders said that the constitution should not be amended to favor an individual or a particular group.
