Former Chairman of the defunct Commission on the Implementation of the Constitution (CIC) Charles Nyachae has slammed the opposition for their call to mass protests over the amendment of electoral laws by the National Assembly.

Nyachae termed the calls for street demonstrations on January 4, 2017 as misplaced, adding that this is a sign of cowardice by the opposition ahead of the 2017 polls.

Cord principals Raila Odinga (ODM), Kalonzo Musyoka (Wiper) and Moses Wetang’ula (Ford Kenya), have vowed to mobilise Kenyans into street protests after failing to stop Jubilee MPs from passing the amended electoral laws last Thursday.

Addressing journalist at Kisii Hotel on Friday, Mr Nyachae said Parliament provided the best ground for both sides to resolve differences touching on electoral laws.

He said mass protests ahead of the general elections would lay ground for political anarchy.

“I have respect for the leaders, especially Mr Odinga, for championing the new constitution which we now have, but to cast aspersions on Parliament and say decisions passed by the same are favouring one side is hypocritical,” said Mr Nyachae.
