Government issues stern warning on “fake” Nasa

The government continues to take note on the opposition attacks on the IEBC and other constitutionally mandated institutions that are doing their job.

NASA Coalition principals Kalonzo Musyoka, Moses Wetangula, Musalia Mudavadi and Raila Odinga during their rally at the Masinde Muliro Grounds in Huruma on March 24, 2017.

“These narratives that falsely portrays our country as not doing well, talks down the achievements of the Kenyan people, and talks down our economy,” State House House Spokesperson Manoah Esipisu said during his weekly press briefing at State House Nakuru.

Esipisu said the government continues to take note on the opposition attacks on the IEBC and other constitutionally mandated institutions that are doing their job.

“We continue to urge them to be responsible, to refrain from peddling fake news stories and attacking the good work that has been achieved. Because, peddling falsehoods as is their penchant demeans Kenya’s progress and by so doing demeans every Kenyan,” Esipisu said.

The government insisted that despite the false narrative that the country is crumbling by the day, Kenya was making and showing progress.

Parallel tallying centre

On Friday during a rally in Nairobi,  the Nasa leaders said they will set up a parallel tallying centre for the August 8 poll results.

The leaders did not give details about the centre, but said its victory is in sight as it has the numbers to win the upcoming election. They promised to use all means available to ensure Kenyans use an electronic system.

It said the centre will stop the Jubilee administration from rigging.

However in a swift rejoinder, Deputy President William Ruto said the Opposition leaders had sensed defeat and were looking for shortcuts to declare themselves winners during the August General Election.

Ruto said by planning to establish a parallel tallying centre during the election was a clear indication that Opposition leaders were in a desperate situation after sensing defeat.
