Nairobi - Somali community leaders have met CORD leader Raila Odinga and pledged to work with him in the run up to the 2017 General Elections.
Raila hosted several leaders from the Somali community from Kamukunji constituency, Nairobi in Orange House for consultations on various issues affecting them.
They raised key concerns including the harassment of the Kenyans of Somali origin, discrimination in their recognition as Kenyans through the non-issuance of national identity cards and provision of a conducive environment for business.
The CORD leader promised to rally the Coalition Members of Parliament to continue championing for equity in legislation as they did when they opposed the oppressive security laws while he will continue carrying the flag of justice for the marginalized.
The opposition leader also promised to engage the County Government of Nairobi to ensure that the issue of an appropriate business environment is adequately addressed by Governor Evans Kidero.
