28 June 2014, 10:34
Nairobi - CORD leader Raila Odinga has handed president Uhuru Kenyatta a ten day ultimatum to agree to talks and avert the Saba Saba day rallies.
Odinga has warned the president that failure to agree to talks will make for a spicy situation come Saba Saba day.
The day is set to be marked July 7, 2014.
" I am telling my brother, let us talk while we still can. We only have about 10 days left, he told the massive crowd gathered for a rally at Eldoret's 64 Stadium.
He insisted that he wants dialogue before other measures even though he did not specify what would be done if the president fails to agree to talks.
" We want a functioning Kenya. It is our home, our motherland. We want to see it do well, he added.
The ruling Jubilee coalition has however said it will not be cowed by opposition threats over the matter.
" We will not be cowed. We will not agree to such talks as they are, majority leader of the national assembly Aden Duale re-affirmed on Friday.
CORD will today hold another rally at Ntulele in Narok.
