CORD postpones anti-IEBC demos in honour of the late Mama Lucy Kibaki

30 April 2016, 10:22 Samuel arap Yego

Nairobi - The opposition coalition has turned the tables on the government after it announced postponement of its planned protests to kick out electoral officials, minutes after a court banned their demos.

CORD Principals Raila Odinga, Kalonzo Musyoka and Moses Wetang’ula on Friday said they have agreed to postpone all political activity in honour of the late former first lady Lucy Kibaki who passed away on Tuesday.

Minutes earlier, a High Court Judge Isaac Lenaola had issued an order banning the three leaders and their supporters from storming into the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) offices in Nairobi.

The order was issued after Jubilee MPs Dennis Waweru (Dagoretti South), Ferdinand Waititu (Kabete), Moses Kuria (Gatundu South), Kimani Ichung’wa (Kikuyu) and Alice Ng’ang’a moved to court seeking that the CORD leaders be stopped from protesting.

“The passing away of Mama Lucy has significance to CORD since the Principals have all worked closely with her husband former President Mwai Kibaki. We decided to postpone all political activity during the three day mourning declared by the government,” said Norman Magaya, the CORD Secretariat CEO in a statement.

“The new date for the demonstration against IEBC shall now be on Monday the 9th May 2016 at 10.00 AM at the IEBC Headquarters at Anniversary Towers in Nairobi and at every IEBC office countrywide and not on Tuesday 2nd May 2016,” added Magaya.
