The National Super Alliance (NASA) top leadership has categorically stated that there will be no repeat presidential polls come October 26.
This assertion cannot be further from the truth given NASA lethargic campaigns barely two weeks to the elections. The NASA leaders, led by former senator Johnstone Muthama, Kakamega Governor Wycliffe Oparanya and MPs Sam Atandi (Alego Usonga) and Opiyo Wandayi (Ugunja), said it was a waste of time to “campaign for an election you will not participate in”.
Their sentiments were echoed by Raila Odinga who said there will be no election if the changes they are demanding are not met.
The Opposition chief faulted the President for withdrawing their security.
“How can we freely campaign when the President has withdrawn our security?”
“A presidential candidate and his running mate are supposed to have security but President Kenyatta has withdrawn it. He has stripped us naked, and this is against the law,” Raila told the Nation.
The NASA leader will be in the UK for the better part of this week where he is expected announce that he won’t participate in the repeat poll.
