CORD retains Saba Saba stance in Narok

29 June 2014, 14:25 William Korir

Nairobi - The CORD coalition was once again vocal about insecurity in the country during its Narok rally and urged the government to move quickly to stem the tide and prevent needless deaths of Kenyans.

The coalition leaders spoke in Ntulele Narok Saturday in a peaceful rally held despite claims of purported violence against supporters of the coalition.

Leader Raila Odinga once again castigated the government over the state of insecurity in the country and called on the government to heed calls for dialogue.

He once again said that he would mobilize thousands of people to come to Nairobi on Saba Saba day next month if the government did not agree to dialogue.

" I think it is obvious that the government has a big problem with taking care of security in the country, which is why we have asked for dialogue, he said.

" We have asked that they sit down with us and discuss ways of solving it because we are seeing the death of many Kenyans.

" They say we wait for five years, yet Kenyans are dying. How many Kenyans will we have lost senselessly if it continues like this? He posed.

President Uhuru Kenyatta seemed to ignore CORDs plea for dialogue earlier Saturday during the funeral of former Military chief Jackson Mulinge in Kathiani.

He instead hinted that CORD should take their issues to parliament and have them solved there.

" We have ways of dealing with situations and we also have ways of treating disorders. I ask that we follow them, not use force, he said.
