Ruto: CORD must not be allowed to cause chaos

22 December 2014, 08:40 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - Deputy president William Ruto says mass action will not help the country in any way, saying the opposition must look for better ways of addressing issues at hand.

Ruto, speaking Sunday over the planned protests which have been mooted as a way of showing displeasure over the enactment of the Security bill 2014 into law my the president, said that such actions will not help the country.

He pointed out at chaos in opposition parties, such as the one that took place in Homa Bay last week during nominations for ODM by elections as proof that the opposition cannot handle matters at home, let alone on a national scale.

" Chaotic scenes and confusion being witnessed in the Opposition's political parties should not be extended to the public. Kenyans will not gain through mass actions. We want a country that is not at war with itself," he said.

He urged CORD to look for democratic and lawful means to air their views, calling mass action a recipe for disaster.

" Taking issues to streets cannot help solve the problem but will instead lead to further confusion. We should not resort to mass action because of competition over issues which can be solved by use of law."

" I want to tell our friends in the Opposition that as much as we respect their right to hold their views, they should do so in good manner. They should conduct their business in a democratic manner," he added.

CORD leaders have said that mass action will be the way forward for the party, after the Security Bill was passed last week amidst chaotic scenes in parliament.
