Is RAILA planning another massacre and bloodshed in 2017? See what he has vowed to doNews 23:34
Friday October 28, 2016 - Another cycle of election-related violence and bloodshed could be in the offing if plans by former Prime Minister Raila Odinga’s CORD are anything to go by.
The Opposition has threatened to boycott the 2017 General Elections if there will be no new voters’ register by then.
According to Siaya Senator James Orengo, a full audit of the voters’ register must be done otherwise, there will be no elections in 2017.
Orengo, who co-chaired the House team on electoral reforms, noted that CORD was not happy with the progress of electoral reforms and wants a full audit of the register before 2017, or else there will be trouble
"The IEBC wants to water down the agreed level of the audit. It is part of the ruinous mess that has characterized elections in Kenya twice in a row," Orengo said.
CORD dismissed a tender by IEBC seeking for the audit of the voters’ register as hogwash.
“The eligibility required, as published by you, is so thin that it is evident you are not looking for the best people in business who must have an international reputation and experience," he said.
