Muslims want CORD to reschedule national dialogue

11 June 2014, 11:35 John Kioko

Mombasa - Kenya Muslim National Advisory Council (KEMNAC) have urged CORD leaders to postpone the national dialogue to October instead of Muslim’s Holy Month of July.

The Council also urged Jubilee to accept the dialogue which is important for the unity of the country noting there is no need for disagreements over the issue.

KEMNAC Secretary General, Hamisi Mwachirumu said that if CORD is committed to ensuring there is a national dialogue, it should put it on hold till Muslims are done with Ramadan.

He noted that it is not be fair for such a dialogue to be held while Muslims are fasting and urged CORD to consider their call.

Mwachirumu said that Muslims want to fast without experiencing tension and that will be possible if the dialogue dates are postponed.

He said that some goons can use the dialogue issue to breach peace if the CORD and Jubilee don’t agree on the matter.

Speaking in Kwale on Monday, Mwachirumu said that Jubilee and CORD should sit and dialogue for the betterment of the nation.

“We welcome the dialogue because it is very important at the time when the country is faced with different challenges ranging from insecurity of Al Shaabab threat to economic constraints,” he noted.

Mwachirumu cautioned Jubilee against refusing to dialogue on issues affecting Kenyans saying it might cause problems in the country.

“We are the ones who elected the ruling government and it will be so unfortunate if the same government can refuse to dialogue with Kenyans on the issues affecting them,” he observed.
