In Summary
  • President Uhuru Kenyatta warned that stern action will be taken against anyone who will attempt to disrupt poll.
  • Odinga said they will continue to push IEBC to meet their demands.

National Super Alliance (Nasa) leader Raila Odinga has said the opposition will hold countrywide demonstrations on October 26.

This is the day set for the repeat presidential election.

Speaking at Kamukunji Grounds in Nairobi on Wednesday, Mr Odinga said they will continue to push the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) to meet their demands.

“(Wafula ) Chebukati's statement today confirms that IEBC takes instructions from State house. Today we are changing our call from no reforms, no elections to October, no elections,” said Mr Odinga ,who has been insisting that he has quit the repeat election.

RESIGNATION

He called for dialogue saying “we must sit down and negotiate” as the current environment is not conducive for any election.

He said resignation of IEBC commissioner Roselyn Akombe was an indication that there is interference from State House.

Mr Odinga made the remarks even as President Uhuru Kenyatta warned that stern action will be taken against anyone who will attempt to disrupt the repeat elections.
