NASA announces next move after IEBC releases Election results in August
The former Prime Minister mentioned that this was to ensure that the electoral does not manipulate the results.
Speaking at a political rally in Kibra, Mr Odinga divulged that the Opposition would hold a parallel tallying and release the results immediately after IEBC.
"IEBC will announce their results … and we will announce ours from our tallying centre for comparison," Odinga said.
He insisted that NASA "will not accept fake results as happened in 2013 at Bomas of Kenya".
In its elaborate plan to protect its votes, the Opposition will station a committee of 50 people for every polling station, who will act as party agents and voter marshals.
Odinga further noted that: "Even if you are sick, they will bring you to vote and take you back to rest. Then the committee will ensure only genuine”.
The Opposition chief mentioned this following his speech at the Bomas of Kenya during the unveiling of NASA, where he urged his supporters to be keen during the voter registration exercise.
“We must monitor the exercise. Where there are impediments to registration like the absence kits and unnecessary registration requirements, these must be recorded and communicated in real time. Each day, we must register the maximum number possible. We must not allow the IEBC to get away with mischief.
“We appeal to you to be our eyes and our ears on the ground on this exercise. We, in turn, shall continue to be your eyes and ears up here against Jubilee,” Mr Odinga noted.
Nonetheless, IEBC chairman Wafula Chebukati warned Odinga against setting up the parallel tallying station stating that IEBC was the only body allowed to tally and announce election results.
