Keep off NASA affairs, Raila tells Jubilee over funds appeal

The National Super Alliance (NASA) Presidential Candidate Raila Odinga has launched a scathing attack on Jubilee leaders for ridiculing the opposition coalition’s appeal to supporters for campaign funds, saying that this is not something new in politics.

Speaking on Sunday, September 10, after attending ACK Isinya Church in Kajiado County, the former Prime Minister faulted Jubilee leaders who have since criticized the opposition for soliciting campaign funds from their supporters.

“We, NASA, don’t have the liberty of tycoons on our side or public funds to fund our campaigns and that is why we are appealing to our supporters, who share our idea of rescuing this country from a failed regime, to chip in,” said Odinga.

Furthermore, the ODM Party leader insisted that raising campaign funds from the public is not a NASA thing and that every political outfit, Jubilee inclusive, do that.

“Sometime back we saw an advert of Jubilee’s dinner party on a local daily meant to raise campaign funds. What is wrong for NASA to do the same thing they did sometimes back?” questioned Odinga.

Odinga was accompanied by NASA Co-principals Moses Wetangula and Musalia Mudavadi, Siaya Senator James Orengo, Kajiado Central MP Elijah Memusi, ODM Chairman John Mbadi and ex-Machakos Senator Johnson Muthama.
