Senator Sakaja in trouble after saving NASA member
And all other facts you need to know about the NASA clash at PanAfric Hotel
Taking to his social media pages, Moses Kuria expressed his disappointment with fellow Jubilee member for helping Mathare MP Anthony Olouch from being thoroughly beaten by unidentified persons during a Jubilee presser that the NRM party member (Oluoch) had interrupted.
A pandemonium broke out on Thursday at Savora Panafric Hotel after Nasa leaders interrupted a Jubilee presser over what they termed as grevious insults to Raila Odinga.
The press conference was held in address to IEBC chairman Wafula Chebukati’s statement that the poll will be postponed in four counties; Kisumu, Homa Bay, Siaya and Migori to 28 October because of security issues.
Elgeyo Marakwet Senator, Kipchumba Murkomen, angered NASA leaders for claiming that he was footing the bill for the NASA team which was also hosting it’s own press conference at the same hotel.
Mr Oluoch accused Senator Kichumba of insulting NRM leader Raila Odinga with his remark that Mzee Odinga destroyed his legacy by declaring the NASA a resistance movement on Wednesday during his briefing at Uhuru Park.
Minutes later the NASA team interrupted the press briefing again after they were attacked by unknown persons at the hotel. The unidentified people are allegedly from Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko’s team.
Nairobi Senator Johnson Sakaja came to the rescue when he left his speech midway to protect Oluoch from the beating.
During his speech, Sakaja stated that Jubilee would not succumb to NRM’s behavior that was designed to disrupt them from their main agenda which was to ensure Kenyans that the repeat elections carried out on 26 October were free and fair.
He said, “ We will not be sidelined out of the issue. As you can see clearly what our colleagues want us to do… we bare a higher responsibility as Jubilee and this country staying together is important to us… we will not fall for this trick.”
According to Murkomen, if the votes in the counties where elections did not take place are deemed to not have a significant influence on the final tally, then it will be unnecessary for them to vote.
