Raila meets Meru leaders

25 June 2015, 12:59 William Korir

Nairobi - CORD leader Raila Odinga has met with leaders from the Meru region to discuss several issues ranging from the Miraa ban to the Okoa Kenya Referendum.

Raila hosted several delegates from Meru County for round-table consultations at his office in Capitol Hill Nairobi.

The delegates led by the ODM Meru County Chairman Gatobu Waruteere were drawn from Tigani, Igembe, Buuri and Imenti areas.

The Prime Minister listened in as the leaders explained the challenges they have been facing ever since the European Union declared Miraa a class B drug thus crippling the region’s main cash crop industry.

The delegates however expressed their gratitude for the Premier’s intervention that saw him write to various European Prime Ministers requesting review of the rules, a matter that is now under consideration.

They also discussed the proposed land reform under the Okoa Kenya Constitutional Amendment Bill and the challenges in Meru County arising from a long history of mismanagement of land affairs.

The delegates reassures the Premier of their continued support in the movement to see Kenya positively changed for the sake of future generations.

" They were very fruitful discussions that we had and we are confident that we will see change in the region with the Okoa Kenya Referendum," Waruteere said.

The leaders also pledged to continue to support the party as it seeks to put pressure on the government to enact change in the country and also in the run-up to the 2017 General Elections.
