FORMER Mungiki leader Ndura Waruinge has criticised leaders of the Cord coalition. He said they have no agenda for the youths who are being ferried to attend their meetings.

"I urge the youths not to allow themselves to be misused by Cord on Monday," Waruinge said. Speaking at Kasarani yesterday, he called on Cord leader Raila Odinga to respect President Uhuru Kenyatta in the way Kenyans respected him when he Prime Minister.

"Raila was respected by Kenyans, he should respect Uhuru," Waruinge said. The Kikuyu Council of Elders national chairman Wachira Kiago, speaking at the same venue, said Kenyans should not be misled to attend a meeting which has ill motives and is not based on development issues.

"I urge Kenyans to go on about their daily routine and not attend the Saba Saba meeting, which is aimed at dividing Kenyans. It will not put bread on their tables," he said.
