      That is the same opinion I have. Give him one week at most and he will be back to his usual ways of hurling all manner of comments at his rallies.

  • Mike Ndech

    This is more like it. You ask for dialogue you don’t demand and threaten the govt with dire consequences if they don’t. Now tame your fellow opposition goons

    • Gabby

      I thought dialogue happens in the parliaments – the county ones or assemblies, the senate and main parliament with even women representatives, where tonnes of motions of import like security ones can be brought at all tiers for debate aka ‘talk’. There are also security budgets in the allocations to the counties ? What was devolution all about; the ‘cake’ with no responsibility?

  • Anony

    Seeking dialogue does not mean cowardice. “I can be a fool within 5 minutes of asking, and you will remain fool forever because you never asked”!

    RAO conspicuously misses out Westgate in his ‘list’ of indicting disasters.

  • irene

    looks like there is somebody who has got a mantra for eradicating corruption, and and and………. within minutes and wont give others a chance to hear themselves think and work on it without shouting to the whole world and disrupting the very processes of working out things. Some things are transitional and are eradicated as a new government continues working…….. whats the mantra for eradicating these things within a week?????? and where are the “if this is not done immediately, a tornado is coming” slogans that were there until kenyans said NO NO NO TO THAT KIND OF TALK. am sad. why paint everything black to look white???? People amicably without stabbing each other on the back and playing better than the rest….. am sad

    All you guys sound shameless and pathetic. We need help and must agree mahali , tumefika hii gava inateleza. mwisho wa kuteleza ni kuanguka. grab the opportunity listen to each other and lets build kenya. Go RAO and go uhuru. we need safety, security and the many other promises that were made which we so much await

      Rao can do nothing to the common mwanainchi beginning with his former constituents for more than ten years in kibra, he was there during Anglo leasing, approving the payments, he was there disbanded kivuiti commission and contracted the new IEBC he was there when kenya military went to Somali, now that he lost election by numbers and by law, all that should be changed until he become prezzo…comical opposition of men in black…..ashindwe

  • Qwani

    Raila tosha!!! That is enough. If you had come out in this manner right from the very beginning, perhaps we just might have believed you. As of now, there is a very big disconnect between what you said at those rallies and what you claim to say here. Some of the comments you made at your rallies have been very vile and distasteful to say the very least.

    • Keniota

      He is always a chameleon, when he sense danger, he coils his tail

  • rho

    So speaks a man who is not only a tribalist but a nepotist going by his appointments in the last government. Let’s not forget corrupt… can he please explain where the Kazi Kwa Vijana funds went? They were managed under the Prime Minister’s office. Let’s also not forget that Rogo… the rogue preacher was executed under your watch as Prime Minister. And he was not the only one. Grenades were set off in Garissa and Nairobi when you were Prime Minister. What did you do? The price of maize and other foods escalated when you were in government, what did you do? I remember a newsbyte of you telling people not to go to the streets to express the high cost of living. Now you preach a different story. What jobs did you create for the youth when you were in government? Give us a break with your shenanigans. You are a propagandists out to malign the name off the government. Plus you preach discord not togetherness of Kenyans. We have your speeches at rallies to show this. Are you going to deny you said things yet they are on record? The Jubilee Government has only been in power for a year,much shorter than your bloody 5 years. Give them time.

    • Sam

      Good thing is that you have no control over what Uhuru or Raila do. They can choose to dialogue or not to and all reason points to a possibility of agreement. In your case, you can only spew vile needlessly.

      • Rho

        ehem. I think you need to read your dictionary more often Sam. Vile? I simply stated facts. Raila wants to sanitize himself but he is no better. Calling a spade a spade. I want dialogue but his approach has been violent. This is how he should have approached it in the first place. Comment from a point of intelligence next time, will you?!

        • Keniota

          Well said

  • kimanthi

    While the article is well titled “need for a structured national dialogue”, Raila and CORD go ahead and itemize the five issues which would be discussed in such a forum without mentioning how such talks would be structured. Therein lays the problem, because the article doesn’t address the key dispute that is on the table currently. Uhuru Kenyatta and the Jubilee government have insisted that such discussions be held through constitutionally
    provided forums. This article therefore does not solve the current impasse and is therefore irrelevant in moving us forward.

  • Mik Jagger

  • mkenyahalisi

    Please note these people were voted in and given a term of 5
    years to deal with these same challenges —which you did not manage to resolve
    in your 5 year of power— After 5 years we will evaluate their performance and
    decide whether to give them another term or not. If they do not manage to solve
    the issues, we are ready to live with / deal with the consequences, since we
    voted them in full knowledge that they will stay for 5 years minimum. Once a leader
    has been chosen there is no middle ground, he has to run full course, that’s
    the inevitable truth about democracy. And please note the message being
    communicated so loudly we can’t hear… is that someone thinks he is better able
    to govern than the president himself. Now while everyone has the luxury to
    think the same, it is lack of etiquette to say such in public. This is sheer lack
    of respect and demeaning to the high office of the head of state. The head of
    state deserves the respect of everyone in order to perform his duties authoritatively
    and with dignity.

    Ultimatums:1.
    Raila Quote:”There are obvious signs that if we do not confront these problems and
    challenges now through a structured process of national dialogue then
    the road to peace will be thorny and difficult”.
    “I say Kenya has largely been at peace with each other(tribally).The Alshabab issue is an external force,so who will make the road(read”presidents tenure”)thorny and difficult?And why cant these issues be raised in Parliament?
    Ultimatums:2.
    Raila Quote”All sovereign power belongs to the people of Kenya and the people may
    exercise their sovereign power directly. The national values and
    principles of governance include participation of the people. We are
    seeking national dialogue within the context of the Constitution and not
    outside it”.
    I say”Kenyans have ELECTED representatives in both the Senate and the Parliament,have these leaders been unable to carry out the mandate give to them by the Electorate?,Has Cord failed to live up to their expectations as the peoples watchmen within the two houses?”.
    Ultimatums:3.
    Prophet Isaiah found in Chapter 1, Verse 18 (King James Version)
    Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins
    be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like
    crimson, they shall be as wool. If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall
    eat the good of the land. But if ye refuse and rebel, ye shall be
    devoured with the sword: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it”.
    I say that this quote speaks volumes who is the lord here?Raila????He wants to forgive????for what????the president shall be devoured by the sword for the “lord” has spoken it?This is to me a direct threat on the Presidents life and should be taken very seriously.
    Ultimatums:3.Raila Quote
    “So I offer the hand of peace and an olive branch so that we may “dwell
    in unity, peace and liberty” and in happiness and prosperity.”
    So all this is for personal gratification,Kenyans are just pawns and expendable lives….why the olive branch unless there is a struggle……..Raila Lost in both rounds,he says he agreed to the resolution of the Kenyan people and the Courts but I think he will stop at nothing to be President of this Nation,NOT for the betterment of Kenyans but to win a “war”,most likely the one lost by his father to Mzee Kenyatta.

    While the issues Raila raises are pertinent,there are avenues that show statesmanship and less likely to lead Kenyans to Tribal strife.three or four people should NOT DICTATE the way a President should rule.Inclusivity should not mean Luo,Luhya and a reluctant Kamba and a Coerced Coast region,at the end of it all it is just three tribal regions,what the difference.
    KENYANS WANT TO MOVE ON,AND THEY WERE DOING SO TILL A FEW WEEKS AGO.HIGHLIGHT THE INSECURITY ISSUES,CORRUPTION AND DEVOLUTION MATTERS SENSIBLY,AS IT IS NOW BECAUSE OF THIS BRAND OF POLITICS,KENYA IS MORE ETHNICALLY DIVIDED THAN EVER!

      • T

        So you’re just sitting around waiting for money from the government instead of coming up with solutions for yourself? Pretty much explains why you are where you are. Don’t you think? Be part of nation building. Instead of asking what the government can do for you, change the question. You’ll surprise yourself with what you come up with. For one, you need to stop the dependency syndrome.

    we the sovereign peoples of Kenya are the ones who appointed uhuruto, and gave
    them delegated authority as per constitution. If they fail to perform, we are
    ready to take responsibility and blame, since we voted them in full knowledge
    they are not perfect and will run for 5 years. Someone should stop distracting our
    leaders. If one has any concerns, let him refer to us ‘the sovereign’ peoples
    of kenya not uhuruto. But we only allow such discourse once in 5 years, 4 now
    we are too busy to have time for sideshows. At the same time, we ‘the sovereign
    peoples of Kenya gave some noble roles to parliament and judiciary – to provide
    checks and balances to government within the precincts of the constitution. This
    is where checks and balances should be exercised, not in public rallies. We the
    kenayn people do not, at this time, wish to exercise our sovereign power in any
    other mode. There is simply no reason to rock the boat

    • Keniota

    Oh ye beautiful hardworking Kenyan sons & daughters, — so peaceful & hardworking that they have no memories of the PEV following political power gluttony in 2007. It is a pity Ocampo looked everywhere but the right direction to charge someone as responsible for the senseless blood letting. Well, we are no fools now. I wonder what is so very very very special about being president; at the expense of our nationhood! God save Kenya from Raila’s, imagined, or is it paranoid, bloody grand march to state house. Can you imagine the possible criminal chaos that may occur in the saba-saba thing? May we be wise and avoid delusional, self-imagined messiahs. We have work & issues to deal with as Kenyans. 2017 is just around the corner.
