Raila lambastes IEBC over 2017 poll strategic plan

15 July 2015, 15:48 Ken Wekesa

Mombasa - Cord leader, Raila Odinga has accused IEBC of preparing their strategic plan for 2017 polls without involving key players.

Speaking during an Iftar held at the Mombasa Fort Jesus graced by Mombasa Senator Hassan Omar, his Kwale counterpart Juma Boy Juma, Jomvu MP Budi Twalib and Nyali MP Awiti Bolo Odinga said the CORD coalition will boycott the 2017 polls if IEBC will be in charge.

“The IEBC have been implicated in major scandals like the chicken gate scandal where the major players in the deal have already been jailed in Britain for engaging corruption,” said Odinga.

He said that Kenyan officials have dragged the investigations involving the IEBC official in Kenyan yet there is proven evidence that they were involved in the irregular procurement of the voting materials.

He further accused the Jubilee administration of derailing the fight against corruption despite the publication of the famous list of shame.

“The Jubilee administration has now embarked on frustrating the EACC. That shows they lack commitment in fighting corruption,” said Odinga.

He lamented that corruption of security forces in Kenya has affected people of Mombasa as well as the tourism industry.

He noted that Mombasa has experienced a number of extrajudicial killings of Imams and Sheikhs but no one has ever been charged.

“Ethiopia and Djibouti have their troops in Somalia but we have not seen the Al Shabaab attack their countries as frequently as they do Kenya,” observed the Cord Principal.

He said the ongoing reforms in the police department have stalled because of corruption.

He also urged coastal residents to take part in the ongoing voters registration ahead of the 2017 polls.
