Welcoming Odinga on Saturday after a sabbatical leave in Unites States, former Vice President, Kalonzo Musyoka said Raila must call for a national dialogue with Uhuru and members of his Jubilee team on Saba-Saba Day (July 7th, 2014) short of which “Kenyans will demand that they leave office and go home.”

Threats of protests from CORD have since stoked tensions in the Kenya, with fears that political violence could break out in the fragile nation.

Raila yesterday said Kenyan leaders are milking the country dry to fatten their personal bank accounts as prices of consumer goods shoot through the roof.

The CORD leader also demanded the disbanding of the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) which he said was favouring Uhuru and his allies.

However, speaking at Kiganjo along the Nairobi-Thika Highway when he made a stopover to acknowledge his welcome by jubilant wananchi this week, Uhuru said Jubilee leaders are focused on fulfilling all pledges made during last year’s campaigns to uplift the living standards of Kenyans.

“The freedom of expression and association in the country should be exercised responsibly. People will continue talking, as God gave us a mouth to talk, but the Government will continue to deliver the promised services to Kenyans,” he added.

President Kenyatta reiterated that Government would not tolerate leaders who practice divisive politics at the cost of development.

“We will not allow incitement to violence, destruction of property, divisions along ethnic or religious grounds in the name of constitutional rights,” warned Kenyatta.

He told opposition leaders who have kept the country in campaign mood to give the Government a chance to serve Kenyans and ‘wait for their turn’.

President Kenyatta reaffirmed his government’s commitment to serve all parts of the country without bias.

The President was returning to Nairobi after attending the funeral of Joseph Ngugi, the former Gatundu South MP.
