Uhuru, Ruto declined Okoa Kenya invitation

23 April 2015, 16:26 William Korir

Nairobi - President Uhuru Kenyatta, his deputy William Ruto declined an invitation to the launch of the Okoa Kenya referendum launch, CORD leader Raila Odinga has said.

Raila, speaking in the keynote speech during the launch Thursday at the Bomas of Kenya, said that the campaign had extended invitations to the president and members of the Jubilee coalition to attend the launch.

None of the Jubilee alliance top brass attended the launch.

" We invited the DP and all members of Parliament because Okoa Kenya is not only for CORD. We wrote a letter to the president inviting him to come to Bomas of Kenya but it seems he has not made it," he stated of the request.

He insisted that the Okoa Kenya initiative was there to improve some sections of the constitution.

" The Constitution in its current state is okay and has done well, but we need some improvements," he added of Okoa Kenya's initiative.

The CORD leader also weighed in on the state of insecurity that has seen many Kenyans killed in terrorist attacks, stating that something has to be done to quell the state of bother.

" Why do we have a security system that can not work when it is needed? Where are the planes that fly along on public holidays? What is their job? Why can't they go rescue our children?

" We must also ensure that security is devolved to a certain extent," he added.

The Okoa Kenya referendum seeks to have constitutional reforms effected in the security framework in the country as well as the state of electoral bodies and others.
