NASA has sensed defeat, Jubilee leaders claim
The UhuRuto Express team has launched a scathing attack on the opposition National Super Alliance (NASA) over what they term as ‘inventing a series of accusation to Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC)’, having sensed defeat in the coming August 8 General Election.
The team, which is made up of Jubilee leaders supporting the re-election of President Uhuru Kenyatta, has exuded confidence that Jubilee will be able to garner a 70%+1 votes as a result of the projects the government has rolled out since 2013.
The leaders, who were speaking during a campaign rally in Murang’a County on Sunday, July 16, were critical of recent claims made by NASA that their supporters ID cards are been bought by Jubilee to sway the voting process to their favour, with Subukia MP Nelson Gaichuhie insisting that the opposition has resorted to employing desperate tactics in wooing voters.
“We are few days to [the] election and the opposition is already panicking. Jubilee strongholds have votes that can deliver a 1 million vote difference and the reality is now dawning on the opposition chiefs,” said the MP.
Maragua MP, Kamande Wambuku, warned the opposition coalition against polarizing the country by making damaging remarks, referring to a recent claim by NASA presidential candidate Raila Odinga that he will not accept defeat unless the presidential ballot papers are printed by another company and not the Dubai-based Al Ghurair.
“It is such [ a] careless declarations, made so close to the elections, which will cause problems in an otherwise peaceful country, someone tell Raila that the voice of the people is the voice of God. The election outcome will be determined by the people of Kenya,” said Mr. Kamande.
The team called upon Murang’a residents to turn up in large numbers on August 8, to vote for President Kenyatta who according to them has outperformed the three previous regimes in terms of development in a record four year’s time.
Some of the projects UhuRuto Express say is the blueprint of Jubilee administration include tarmacking of roads, more Kenyans connected to the electricity grid, increased number of referral hospitals and waiving of farmers’ loans.
Also present in the campaign rally include MPs Joseph Kiuna (Njoro), Esther Gathogo (Ruiru), Samuel Gichingi(Kipipiri), Njogu Barua(Gichugu), Nderitu Mathenge (Gilgil), Elias Mbau, Mary wambugu among others.
