Raila calls for national dialogue, wants IEBC disbanded

Nairobi, Kenya: CORD leader Raila Odinga has demanded for national dialogue on insecurity and  corruption in 60 days and called for disbandment of Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC).

Addressing a mammoth crowd at Uhuru Park, who had gathered to welcome him back after three months in the US, Raila said he will hold rallies countrywide.

The places he will tour are: Nakuru, Kisumu, Kakamega, Garissa, Mombasa, Machakos, Nyeri, Bungoma, Kitale and Eldoret.

The former Prime Minister also said peace and country's economy must be restored  and promised to keep Jubilee Government on toes.

"I want to see peace returns in our country and IEBC must go home", Raila said.

He added that prices of basic items like food, fare and rent must be reduced.

The pary leader further said CORD must remain united adding that Muslims and Christians in Mombasa must live harmonioulsy.

Earlier, Bungoma Senator Moses Wetangula also addressed the rally and criticised IEBC on the ongoing voter registration. CORD Co-principal Kalonzo Musyoka told the rally the issues of insecurity must be dealt with and called for a national dialogue on July 7.

Attemps by Nairobi Governor Evans Kidero to address the rally failed after the huge crowd rejected him despite Kalonzo's plea to let him speak.
