The battle lines for the change of the country’s electoral body continues to rage on with Jubilee leaders condemning the move by the opposition (Cord) for their planned camp at IEBC offices.
The constant push and pull between the Jubilee and Opposition Cord over their plans to eject the IEBC Chairman Isaak Hassan and eight of its commissioners still continues to brew ahead of next year’s general elections.
This comes just hours after Justice Lenaola barred the coalition from storming into IEBC offices pending determination of a case filed by five Jubilee MPs who went to court yesterday in a bid to stop cord leaders and its supporters from storming the IEBC offices…
Despite this ruling, the Cord coalition has not heeded to this.Through a statement sent to news rooms they have stated and I quote.
“CORD calls on its supporters nationwide to join other Kenyans in honouring Mama Lucy and defer occupation of IEBC offices outside Nairobi,”
Occupation of IEBC will, however, resume on Monday, 9th May 2016 nationwide. Thereafter, it will be held every Monday as had been announced earlier,”
Narok Governor Samuel Ole Tunai has criticized their move saying the coalition brigades should follow due process in pushing for their agenda.
Tunai said Kenyans are not ready for post-election violence adding that what cord have started might bring tension in the country.
Even as the battle rages, political pundits are warning of a heated time leading up to the elections slotted for next year August.
