Big boost for NASA after UK group endorsed Raila Odinga’s swearing in
NASA receives support from UK group
At a meeting held in London, Kenyan Diaspora Community National Super Alliance (NASA) in the United Kingdom declared that they were in support of the plans to swear in Raila and Kalonzo.
The group’s representative Ali Abdi noted that “In the year of 2018, it is our hope and belief that our nation will be liberated. We in the Diaspora have paid close attention and watched in anguish at the embarrassing revelation of what is now widely regarded around the world as a farcical political system.”
The group further stated that they would form People’s Assembly in solidarity with their Kenyan counterparts fighting for electoral justice.
In a statement issued after the meeting, the group maintained that they do not recognize the legitimacy of President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto noting that they were the products of a flawed electoral system.
The group also took a swipe at the Jubilee administration claiming that presently, ”majority of the population is struggling to make ends meet in a weakened economy with rising government debt, misappropriation and looting of public funds by high-ranking civil servants, strikes by doctors, nurses and lecturers due to non-adherence towards agreed upon terms of employment, university students’ strikes due to poor services and many others,”.
Tom Juma, another representative of the group called o Kenyans to continue with boycotting products from particular companies that NASA believes are allied to the Jubilee administration.
“While pressing on in this journey towards the liberation of our nation, we encourage our brothers and sisters to continue boycotting of products produced by firms that fund the oppressive illegitimate government,” Juma said.
NASA has vowed to proceed with its controversial plans to swear in Raila Odinga and Kalonzo Musyoka, maintaining that the two were validly elected.
On Friday, the opposition released what it called the results of the 2017 presidential election in which it claimed that its presidential candidate Raila Odinga won.
