Raila’s Unexpected Utterances Kenyans can’t keep with
No! That is not possible! Heshimu wazee!
The National Super Alliance Presidential Candidate Raila Odinga now wants the Wafula Chebukati led IEBC to change the election date, from the set October 26th.
“We cannot have elections on 26 October because people will be voting Uhuru Kenyatta as a gift, we don’t want that, we want a neutral date,” Raila remarked in a press conference on Friday at the Okoa Kenya Secretariat offices in Nairobi during a press conference.
Since the announcement of the new date by the IEBC, Uhuru Kenyatta’s strategy to mop up support ahead of the repeat polls changed tune, and now his camp is calling ion Kenyans to “give him a birthday present on October 26,” as a birthday present.
Mr Kenyatta will be turning 56 on Thursday October 26.
Meanwhile, President Uhuru Kenyatta and NASA presidential candidate Raila Odinga shared a podium ion Kiambu for the first time after the detailed ruling by the Supreme Court, in which the supremacy battles took a centre stage.
“Wewe bwana Rais, heshimu wazee. Heshimu mahakama. Let us accept what the court has said,” Odinga said.
In a rejoinder, however, Mr Kenyatta, flanked by high ranking officials including Kiambu Governor Fernand Waititu argued that the former Prime Minister should accept the decision made by Kenyans
“Mimi pia nawaheshimu wazee, Lakini wewe nawe heshimu uamuzi wa WaKenya,” Mr Kenyatta hit back at Raila and mourners during the burial of a former Nairobi mayor Samuel Mbugua in Kiambu on September 22, 2017.
