Cord threatens to protest twice weekly if no IEBC talks are held

The Opposition coalition on Monday said it will begin staging demonstrations in the city centre every Monday and Thursday to pile pressure on the government to agree to dialogue and push electoral chiefs out of office.

Buoyed by Monday’s High Court ruling that allowed the demonstrations, Cord said it will begin the biweekly protests in two weeks if their Jubilee counterparts decline to hold talks on the composition of the IEBC.

The announcement was made on Monday at a press briefing by Senators James Orengo and Johnson Muthama moments after Justice Joseph Onguto had made the ruling.

They said the demonstrations will be peaceful.
