Moi urges CORD to let the president be

29 June 2014, 10:48 William Korir

Nairobi - Retired president Daniel Moi has spoken out against divisive politics, calling on opposition leaders to look out for the interests of Kenyans and leave the president in peace to deliver on his mandate.

He spoke in Kathiani Saturday during the burial service for the late General (Rtd) Jackson Kimeu Mulinge which was held at Kathiani Boys High School grounds in Machakos County.

Moi called on leaders across the political divide to look for ways of helping Kenyans grow and not spread hate and anger amongst the masses.

" I call on all leaders to respect Kenyans and respect the fact that they want to live peaceful lives.

He also added that the opposition give the president time to work and focus on building their campaigns for the next election instead.

" Instead of politicizing issues, leaders should give the President space to execute his Constitutional mandate and implement the Government’s development agenda. Democracy demands that after elections those who lose wait to try their luck next time instead of harbouring hatred and planting the seed of disunity among the people, he added.

CORD leaders are seeking dialogue to solve the current problems affecting the country, of which the ruling Jubilee coalition has refused to agree to.
