Nyeri - Nyeri Senator, Mutahi Kagwe has said that the anti-IEBC demonstrations by CORD are affecting the economy.
Kagwe said entrepreneurs are losing more than 20 per cent revenues during the protests.
“Businesses are losing 20 per cent every Monday. Monday is a working and productive day and everybody should be busy engaging in nation building activities not distracting others,” he said.
He noted that businesses are going down due to looting and running battles between police and the protesters.

He asked the Coalition for Reforms and Democracy (CORD) leaders to follow the legal process in their quest to remove the electoral body commissioners.
“Let the law be followed by all people. Legal process is the only reputable avenue and that will be welcomed by all people,” Kagwe stated.
However, CORD has maintained that they will continue with the protests until the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) officers vacate office.
Siaya Senator James Orengo said the demonstrations will be held in all major cities across the country including Kisumu, Mombasa and Kakamega.
