NASA presidential poll boycott threat reckless, says Tuju
Secretary General, Raphael Tuju in the company of Jubilee party members addressing the media on NASA threatening to boycott presidential election.

Jubilee has faulted the opposition for threatening to boycott Oct 17 presidential vote even after soliciting campaign funds from Kenyans.

Jubilee Secretary General Raphael Tuju dared the National Super Alliance (NASA) to officially notify the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission of their decision to not participate in the presidential rerun.

Speaking at a press conference on Thursday, Tuju criticised NASA for backtracking on their oath of office and failing to hold their legislative duties as mandated by the Constitution, terming their actions and utterances reckless.

However, despite the threat to boycott House proceedings, the Bungoma Senator Moses Wetangula participated in the election of the Senate Deputy Speaker.

Taunting NASA lawmakers, Tuju advised them to miss eight consecutive sittings so that their seats can be declared vacant.

Further, Tuju accused NASA of robbing poor Kenyans by seeking to raise Sh12 billion for campaigns despite their continued threat to boycott the fresh presidential election ordered by the Supreme Court on September 1.

NASA has continued to demand for changes at the electoral commission including live coverage of presidential polls at the constituencies and national tallying center as well as sacking of senior IEBC officials over the bungled presidential poll.
