In a London meeting with the Cord Alliance parties officials and supporters, The Former Prime Minister Raila Amollo Odinga thanked The UK and Europe chapters cord supporters for the spirited support they put during the recently concluded elections.
Speaking to an emotional audience that condoled him for the loss of one of his reforms movement lieutenants Hon Mutula Kilonzo, he reassured them that no stone will be left unturned in establishing the truth about the mysterious death of the former Makueni Senator.
Â After receiving the Pathologist back from Nairobi, he added that what remains now is theÂ Â laboratory tests of the samples in the UK to confirm the suspicion of death through poisoning of one of the countryâ€™s most revered senior counsel.
The Former Prime Minister was accompanied by his aide who also headed his last Campaign Secretariat Mr. Eliud Owalo, in his remarks which were somewhat a retrospective look at what went wrong. He [Mr. Owalo] stated that they had established that more should have been doneÂ in terms of protecting the vote.Â
He regretted that whilst they were busy circling the country and marshalling the cord troops to vote, their opponents were busy conniving and strategizing how to steal the vote which like he said should have been protected better.
The Disapora Cord fraternity consensus maintainedÂ that Raila and Kalonzo should lead party from the inside the legislature structures, the argument theyÂ presented Â were that â€˜with a weakened Judiciary that itâ€™s Supreme Court petitionâ€™s ruling was dubbed as â€˜most useless exerciseâ€™ in the NY times and The Executive thatÂ is perceived to be responsible for it in unproven ways;
They [Diaspora Cord Fraternity] concurred with Senator Johnstone Muthama that the legislature remains as the only option channel to ardently protect the country against schemes aimed at frustrating devolution and the implementation of the New Constitution.
The former Prime Minister warned of the governmentâ€™s plans of sabotaging devolution by running a parallel system of the old provincial administration alongside the new devolved system. He leaves London today to arrive in Nairobi right into afresh controversy that the government has refused to release toxicology samples of the late Makueni Senetor.
