THE Council of Kaya elders yesterday faulted Cord’s move to hold a public rallies, to welcome former Prime Minister Raila Odinga back to the country. The elders said the politicians should be careful not to fuel chaos among Kenyans at the rallies.

Addressing a press conference in Mombasa town yesterday, the elders said political rallies are uncalled for at this time when the country is grappling with the insecurity problems.

Julius Saha, the patron Kaya elders said Kenyan leaders should shy away from divisive politics and build the country together. “We are not in the electioneering period, hence we do not see the reason why the opposition should hold public rallies to talk negative issues about the government,” he said.

“As Kenyans, we need to support our government and criticize it when it is not working properly but opposition should not use criticism to incite the public.”
