Narok - National Council for Persons with Disabilities chairman David ole Sankok has said that CORD leader, Raila Odinga is responsible for bringing the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) when he was the Prime Minister in the grand coalition government.
Sankok said Raila and former President Mwai Kibaki are the ones who brought the IEBC commissioners, and so the Jubilee government is not responsible for the issues they are currently pushing for.
“He should carry his own cross because they sat with Kibaki and decided to settle on the electoral body and President Uhuru Kenyatta and his Deputy William Ruto were nowhere at that time. So Raila should blame himself and Kibaki for the mess,” said Sankok.
Speaking to the News24, Sankok added that Kenyans decided to work with the new electoral team led by Issack Hassan appointed by Raila and Kibaki.
“It is sad that you have been fighting leaders who do not favour you but we need leaders who are fair and impartial,” he said.

“Raila is sensing another defeat in the next year's election and he wants to use all means possible to ensure that the elections are not conducted peacefully but we are telling him that Kenyans are wiser than him,” said Sankok.
He advised him to retire from politics and leave it to the young people instead of engaging in issues that will not change Kenyans.
“Raila should just retire from politics because he has been a stumbling block to the Jubilee administration. He is fond of opposing and bring confusion to the country for almost four decades,” he said.
He said the demonstrations against the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) has already divided the country and urged opposition to use the right channels to push for their grievances.
