The former Prime Minister also said his coalition was not interested in power sharing saying they had left everything to the Jubilee administration after the Supreme Court ruling over the 2013 General Election.

“We went to the court and it ruled on our case which we said we shall respect. We shall not look back… we only want to address the challenges facing the country,” he stated.

“We do not want to have power through the back door; those are just propaganda’s.”

He also called for the sacking of the Interior Cabinet Secretary and all the senior security chiefs.

“We call for the overhaul and reconstitution of Kenya’s security organs so that they can promote and guarantee national security and ensure that recruitment by the national security organs reflect the diversity of the Kenyan people in equitable proportions,” he said.

“Replace the Cabinet Secretaries and the Principal Secretaries for Defence and Internal Security and the heads of intelligence, police and criminal investigation as they have exhibited incompetence and dereliction of duty in the performance of their responsibility under the law.”

He also called for establishment of, “a competent and independent judicial commission of inquiry to investigate and establish the circumstances surrounding and leading to the Westgate terrorist attack and the Mpeketoni massacres with a view of prosecuting the perpetrators of these heinous crimes.”

The former Prime Minister was accompanied by CORD Senators and Members of Parliament.
