RAILA ODINGA insists UHURUTO don’t have an option but to dialogue or face a ‘tsunami’
Former Prime Minister Raila Odinga has reaffirmed that the planned saba saba rally in Nairobi’s Kamukunji Grounds on July 7th is on.
Speaking yesterday in Bonchari, where he drummed up support for the ODM candidate in the upcoming parliamentary by-election, Raila maintained that the saba saba rally will go on as planned and warned President Uhuru Kenyatta and his Deputy, William Ruto, to convene the urgent national dialogue before then or face a political ‘tsumani’.
Raila said these after he cancelled two of his planned rallies in Kisii and Nakuru scheduled for Friday and Sunday respectively because of the campaigns in Kisii and to allow Kenyans to mourn the victims of the Al-Shabaab terror attack in Mpeketoni, which left more than 70 people dead.
“We will not cancel our rallies the way Uhuru/ Ruto have asked. We will go on until Jubilee yields to pressure to dialogue with CORD for the sake on the nation,” said Raila adding “the planned saba saba rally is still on”.
The former PM also insisted that Saturday’s planned CORD meeting in Kakamega will also go on as scheduled.
