CORD MPs tell Raila to stop street protests
13 May 2016, 20:23
Nairobi - A group of CORD MPs has urged leader Raila Odinga to cease
the street protests taking place in the country over the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commision IEBC.
The MPs who form a group of young leaders say that the
protests are giving the coalition a hard time and a bad name.
The protests have caused traffic jams in the city, theft to members of
the public and so on and according to the leaders, they are counter-productive.
According to sources, the leaders are the ones that have led
the way for the CORD leader to seek dialogue with the executive.
“The MPs have told Raila that the protests are not being
well taken by the public and are giving CORD a bad name,” an MP who chose not
to be named told News24.
The MPs are said to be led by Mathare MP Stephen Kariuki who
could not be reached for comment.
Wednesday, Deputy President William Ruto agreed to dialogue
over the IEBC saying that for the sake of the country it was better to have the
talks to ease tensions over the protests against the IEBC.
