Raila issues a strict warning to 2 Cabinet Secretaries in latest twist
Odinga has hinted at a plan by Jubilee to use KDF to round up NASA election agents
Odinga has instead told Jubilee to prepare for a major political tsunami that will sweep the ruling party out of power in August.
Mr Odinga, who spoke on a tour in Musalia Mudavadi’s Vihiga turf, together with other Nasa leaders, dismissed attempts by President Uhuru Kenyatta to woo voters in Western Kenya, arguing that the residents were tired of empty promises.
The Nasa team accused Interior CS Joseph Nkaissery and his Defence counterpart Raychelle Omamo of scheming to get the military into the general elections with ill-motives.
“The ongoing training by the military under the guise of preparations to deal with emergencies before and after the elections are a plot to intimidate the opposition and rig the election in favour of Jubilee,” said Mr Odinga.
Mr Odinga was flanked by Amani’s Musalia Mudavadi and Ford Kenya’s Moses Wetang’ula. Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka sent apologies.
Nasa principals were in Vihiga to hunt for the more than 200,000 votes from the region ahead of a planned visit by President Kenyatta and his Deputy to officiate at a church event in Kaimosi.
The three Nasa principals addressed a major rally at Moses Budamba Mudavadi Memorial Grounds in Mbale town after speaking at a series of stopovers in all the five constituencies to popularise the coalition.
Others who accompanied them included Vihiga Governor Moses Akaranga, Senators George Khaniri (Vihiga), James Orengo (Siaya) and Ms Elizabeth Ongoro (Nominated) and MPs Alfred Agoi (Sabatia), Dr Wilbur Ottichilo (Emuhaya) and Yusuf Chanzu (Vihiga).
While hailing the ruling by the Appellate Court that affirmed results declared at the constituency level as final, Mr Odinga and Mr Mudavadi warned Jubilee not to rig the election.
