“I will not hesitate, even for a minute” Uhuru Warns Raila

The NASA coalition led by its leader Raila Odinga has insisted that it would not participate in the election if Jubilee attempted to change the existing electoral law, accusing the ruling coalition of seeking to overturn the Supreme Court ruling.

President Kenyatta, however, stated that he would not hesitate to change the assent to the controversial law.

“I will not hesitate, even for a minute, to sign the new amendments into law once presented to me after debate and approval by parliament,” Kenyatta tweeted.

The statement came an hour before Odinga announced his withdrawal from the Repeat presidential election slotted for October 26.

The proposed law had sought to discourage the Opposition chief from withdrawing from the repeat election by declaring that the remaining candidate (in this case Kenyatta) would be declared President.

At the time of Odinga’s withdraw, the election amendment law was still being debated and was yet to take effect meaning the repeat election would be cancelled unless the Court gives a different direction.
