CORD vows to push for referendum call

13 July 2014, 09:34

Migori - Leaders from the Coalition for Reforms and Democracy (CORD) have vowed to keep the Jubilee government on toes until it fully addresses the challenges facing Kenyans.

Speaking at the burial of former Prime Minister Raila Odinga’s mother-in-law in Migori County, the leaders said their push for a national referendum was unstoppable and asked President Uhuru Kenyatta to brace himself for tough times ahead, The Standard reports.

They said the government tried to frustrate the Saba Saba rally but it was successful.

According to former Vice President Kalonzo Musyoka, Jubilee leaders expected them to ask their supporters to storm State House and cause chaos, but they did not do that because they did not want to harm innocent Kenyans.

On Friday, President Kenyatta invited CORD leader Raila Odinga to tea, urging him to meet him for talks and stop undermining his presidency.

He urged the opposition to focus on improving the lives of Kenyans and reduce politics.
He mentioned the Saba Saba rally in which over 15,000 policemen were deployed to Nairobi's Uhuru Park to ensure peace as unfortunate and unnecessary.
