Speaking during a press conference at the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) secretariat Orange House and at a campaign rally in Mathare, Nairobi, the Opposition leaders maintained that the soldiers had been sent to NASA's strongholds to cause chaos.

Bungoma Senator and NASA Principal Moses Wetangula stated that: “The latest revelations indicate that a garrison of sorts has been set up in Hakati, Busia, which will accommodate hundreds of army personnel.

"The soldiers will be deployed from Lanet, Nakuru and Gilgil garrisons,”

Mr Wetangula added that the KDF soldiers were planning to disguise themselves as Administration Police officers while others as civilians in a bid to start the chaos at different polling stations.

“Most of the officers will be wearing Administration Police uniform since the Army cannot be deployed for action within Kenya without Parliament’s approval,” the NASA statement added.

“Other army officers will be in civilian clothes and are the ones who will cause disturbances among the voters,” Mr Wetangula's statement read in part.

NASA further claimed that 150 soldiers had been deployed in Kisii, Migori, Homa Bay, Siaya, Bungoma, Kakamega and Narok, among others to cause disturbance.

However, military spokesman, Colonel Joseph Owuoth rubbished the allegations as baseless.

“I wish to reiterate that KDF remains apolitical before, during and after the elections,” Col Owuoth said.

“If Odinga were a credible contender for the presidency, he would be a prospective Commander-in-Chief of the KDF and he would balk at even considering the idea of those irresponsible allegations.” he noted.

This comes days after NASA Presidential candidate released names of 42 soldiers being used to allegedly rig the election.
