Court gives Cord green light to hold Uhuru Park rally
The High Court has cleared Cord to hold a rally at Uhuru Park on Madaraka Day. In his ruling on Tuesday, High Court Judge, George Odunga, also directed police to ensure that there is security during the rally.
The ruling comes just a day after Kenya’s top security organ banned the planned rally even as the Cord leaders vowed to go ahead with the event.
The opposition alliance had also said on Monday that it had filed a case in court to overturn the ban by National Security Advisory Council (NSAC) on rallies at Uhuru Park.
