Mombasa - Former Prime Minister Raila Odinga presided over a meeting with fellow CORD leaders in Mombasa to review strategies for their push for a referendum to end what they call the tyranny of numbers.
The Standard reports that the coalition wants the President elected by Parliament saying it would end the marginalisation of small tribes in the country’s political leadership.
Meanwhile Deputy President William Ruto accused CORD leaders of pursuing a selfish agenda and that their “new push to overhaul the constitution” is motivated by alleged refusal to accept the outcome of the March 4 presidential elections.
