President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto now say that the opposition National Super Alliance (NASA) has become a nuisance to the country because of the many court cases related to the August 8 General Election that they are filing.

Speaking during a rally in West Pokot County on Thursday, July 27, the DP was reacting to today’s (July 27) move where NASA moved to court challenging the alleged plan by the government to deploy KDF officers to areas listed as violence hot spots during the polls.

Ruto called upon NASA not to concentrate on the courts but instead focus on selling their manifesto to Kenyans as they are the only entity that will decide the outcome of the August polls.

“I now hear that NASA has again gone to court, this time round attacking our security systems. I want to advise them to tell people their agenda because Kenyans will be the ones to decide if they win or lose elections and not the courts,” said DP Ruto.

President Kenyatta launched scathing attacks on NASA leaders, insisting that they have done nothing to benefit Kenyans despite them being in influential government positions in the past regimes.

The President in particular discredited NASA running-mate Kalonzo Musyoka and Amani National Congress (ANC) Party Leader, Musalia Mudavadi, alleging that ever since the two were in university they have never stepped into West Pokot.

“Even my brother Odinga when he was Prime Minister, how did he help people of West Pokot? They call us, DP Ruto and I, Nyayo orphans and I am telling them that we are not denying our mentors in politics,” said President Kenyatta.
