If honesty drives IEBC reforms push, then let stakeholders sit down and talk…

Today, the Cord coalition was expected to resume its weekly anti-IEBC demos, even as the nation had just heaved a sigh of relief with reports of dialogue over the same. If recent events are anything to go by, property will likely be destroyed, streets engulfed by tear gas and unfortunately, some lives could be lost.

While the poor youthful protesters will be consuming tear gas coupled with bruises from police batons, their political masters will have been carted off from the hostile grounds and later hold a press briefing in a secure hotel condemning the deaths and violence.

Cord’s push is totally justifiable —we need major electoral reforms. But the consistency in staging disruptive protests is increasingly raising more questions than answers.
