Kenyan workers and civil society groups threaten mass action to force President Kibaki to dissolve Parliament and hold fresh elections
Kenyan workers and civil society groups are threatening mass action to force President, Mwai Kibaki, to dissolve Parliament and hold fresh elections after the referendum next month.

Central Organisation of Trade Unions, Kenya National Union of Teachers, Union of Civil Servants, Nurses Association of Kenya, National Civil Society Congress, National Convention Executive Council and the Multi Sectoral National Yes Campaign, have jointly declared that they will leave Kibaki no option other than to dissolve Parliament if he does not cooperate with them.

The organisations say the only solution is to pass the new proposed constitution as it provides for a Salaries and Remuneration Commission that will decide salaries for members of parliament and public officials.
