Jubilee ‘forcing’ NASA leaders to concede defeat, Mudavadi claims
National Supper Alliance (NASA) co-principal Musalia Mudavadi now claims that the Jubilee administration is mounting pressure on NASA governors who lost in the just-concluded August 8 General Election to concede defeat even when they are contesting the election results.
The Amani National Congress (ANC) Party leader further claimed that President Uhuru Kenyatta’s handlers are allegedly threatening the outgoing governors with tax evasion cases and business closure.
In a statement to newsrooms on Monday, August 21, Mudavadi cited Nairobi, Machakos, Narok, Marsabit and Garissa Counties as some of the counties where NASA candidates in the just-ended polls have been intimidated to unwillingly concede defeat.
“The most disturbing feature of this arbitrary political pressure is that it involves threats and intimidation particularly by waving the specter of prosecution, unwarranted and excessive tax evasion assessments and demands, and interference with legitimate business or other enterprises,” read the statement from the opposition coalition.
Further, NASA alleges that NASA candidates who won parliamentary seats are also been compelled to pronounce their willingness to co-operate and work closely with the Jubilee regime.
This, NASA said, is a show of how Jubilee is “insecure and worried of its survival knowing well that it lacks the mandate of the people.”
NASA has since filed a petition at the Supreme Court contesting the declaration of President Uhuru Kenyatta by the electoral body, IEBC, as the winner of the August 8 presidential election.
NASA argues that the electoral commission’s election servers were compromised to rig-in President Kenyatta and his Deputy William Ruto.
The opposition coalition has since branded President Kenyatta a ‘computer-generated leader’ who was not chosen by the people of Kenya.
