Angry CORD supporters have faulted their leaders for suspending the Monday’s anti-IEBC protests. The supporters mostly the youth said the protests had gained moment and therefore an anti-climax for suspending them.
They faulted the USA embassy in Nairobi for continually misleading the Opposition and therefore indirectly supporting Jubilee regime. Most ODM members remember that in 2007 ambassador Michael Ranberger sent a congratulatory message to Kibaki immediately he was declared winner by IEC chairman Kivuitu even as it was open elections had been massively rigged.
In 2013, it is alleged that USA embassy in Nairobi encouraged Raila to go the courts where the supreme court conduct a shoddy job.
Here are some of the comments by CORD supporters:
Hon Jim Bonnie :> “we’re suspending protests to give time for dialogue. [Then the most annoying part of it] “We’ll resume the protests if we don’t here a word from jubilee”.
Lol, Uhuru Kenyatta is the luckiest president since Kenya got its independence.
Nindo Kanindo says: It’s high time Raila ataenda hizo demonstration pekee ykee… This is why many people atimes have lost faith in this guys, lemme just ask after kaisemoke demonstration and it was said that until IEBC odhidala why now call off demonstration yet our main motive hasn’t been achieved. A time when we needed the demonstrations everyday to pile pressure on this govt and not on intervals such as Mondays only. Raila owepimo wiwa bwana, it’s high time we abscond such demonstrations odhi gi family ne en, Ida, Raila Jnr, Winnie and rosemary…. Ngani ok bi bedo ker Kenya kaye….
James :> Why does @RailaOdinga always kill momentum. Sisi ndio tuna anza ku gain momentum ya demo …teagass tumezoea…tumejitolea kuuwawa na Ouru alafu muaanza kutuambia nini…!?
Michael Okoth says: The decision by CORD to suspend the weekly anti-IEBC demonstrations is a very stupid one.We cannot be fighting all battles halfway for hell’s sake!What a pathetic political strategy!When shall we ever do a battle to a logical conclusion?So what was the blood and the lives of the recently killed youths for?
I think our youths must now come forward and start asking the CORD leadership very difficult questions.Their troubles and blood cannot be going in vain at every turn….
Baari Ramos : That’s the point my friend, the war was purposeless. It’s nothing about you and so the lives lost don’t matter. Maybe the objective has been achieved…problem is you are not part of it! Now you know. Sad.
Sophy Mwale-Juma says.. painful…the people can no longer rely on the bravery of their general…We told him ‘go big or go home’.i guess he went for the later
Miseda Cole says ” Am not talking about cord, but about Rao. Rao has always been a joke, a rocking chair that shakes but takes you nowhere. You are not serious you believed something meaningful was in the offing. For me, calling off that joke is good for the safety of our drunk and desperate youth.
Ombijja says; Raila again falls for jubilee trap via USA embassy in Nairobi. It is high time Raila realised that USA embassy is against his presidency. Ranberger was the first to congratulate Kibaki in 2007 and in 2013 they misled him to go to court. When will Raila mature?
