Raila promises to work with Uhuru on insecurity

Nairobi - CORD leader Raila Odinga says he will work with the Jubilee coalition to enhance security in the country.
The CORD leader, responding to criticism from the president that the opposition was creating divisions in the country instead of helping improve security, said that he would work with the government to end the current problems facing the country.
" I met the president and we have already agreed to discuss pertinent issues in the country like insecurity, he told News24.
The president had invited opposition leaders to talks during his Jamhuri Day Speech Sunday, instead of issuing threats which he described as not helpful.
Raila though, believes that the opposition has no option other than to try ensure the government is on its toes seeing as they cannot force through some agendas using talks.
" The reality is that mass action is inevitable especially when it comes to a government that does not listen much to other stakeholders, he added.
CORD had insisted that it would call for mass action if the planned national security bill is passed, claiming that it infringes on the rights of Kenyans.
The president though has played down those fears, instead stating that he needs power to implement vital security changes.
