Nairobi Law Monthly - - Opening Statement - Cord leader Raila Odinga. – Kikuyu MP Ki­mani Ichungwa.

“Th­ese quests for ex­ten­sions are of­ten couched in a lan­guage that por­trays a leader’s de­sire for more time in of­fice as a re­sponse to pop­u­lar de­mands. It has al­ready ex­ploded in Bu­rundi. Blaise Com­paore’s at­tempt to seek a third term in Burk­ina Faso was stopped by pop­u­lar protests…” “With gov­er­nors hav­ing more money at their dis­posal, it has given them in­flu­ence over se­cu­rity agen­cies… In the run up the next elec­tion, if we al­low im­punity to reign, the 2007-8 PEV will look like a chil­dren’s dance… The mili­tia is not just backed by the gov­er­nor. It is man­aged by the county govern­ment”
