From Saba Saba to Nane Nane – Uhuru’s new rallying call
President Uhuru Kenyatta has slammed the opposition – National Super Alliance (NASA), over its unpreparedness for the August 8 General Election.
Speaking during his tour of Kiambu County on Saturday, March 4, President Kenyatta said that the Jubilee Party is ready for the election that will be held in six months.
The Head of State, in his address, in a new strategic campaign dubbed Nane Nane, Tuko Tayari – aimed at showing the Jubilee party’s preparedness, said that his party is ready for the election that will be held on the eighth day of the eighth month of the year.
He said that the idea behind Nane Nane was informed by the electoral dates and the close association Kenyans have with the infamous Saba Saba, a historic day in Kenya’s calendar.
President Kenyatta said that the opposition has been laying a foundation for rejecting the August elections with its numerous castigation of the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) and its commissioners.
He said that the Opposition has lost track and Kenyans have no faith in it and thus called on the electorate to come out in large numbers and vote in his favour.
The President, who will be seeking a second term, accused the opposition leaders of practicing divisive and tribal politics ahead of the August General Election.
Addressing residents of Limuru and Kimende in Kiambu County, the President, who was accompanied by his deputy, William Ruto, asked the opposition leaders to instead put their house in order and outline their agenda to Kenyans ahead of the polls.
President Uhuru also asked the resident to vote for Jubilee in the coming polls to ensure the government continues to uplift the lives of Kenyans.
The Head of State then visited Kimende, Kagwe, Githunguri, Kiambu, Banana, Ruaka, Wangige and Kikuyu towns respectively.
