The newly elected Anglican Church of Kenya Archbishop Jackson ole Sapit has called on the opposition Cord to suspend protests and give dialogue a chance. The cleric said it was necessary that the stalemate over the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) is addressed as a matter of urgency adding that only dialogue will solve challenges the country is facing.
Cord leaders Raila Odinga, Moses Wetang’ula and Kalonzo Musyoka have been leading protests every Monday to force IEBC commissioners out of office. “We should use peaceful ways to get what we want. I am appealing to those who want commissioners out of office to be patient as we give dialogue a chance,” he said. Bishop Sapit said: “I am also asking Jubilee and IEBC as well to be open to dialogue.” He said Cord may have been forced to protests after their pleas for electoral reforms were ignored.
