The Coalition of Reforms and Democracy (CORD) leader, Raila Odinga, says opposition leaders will remain united under the new National Super Alliance (NASA).

Speaking in Bomet County, the former Premier lashed out at the Jubilee administration for abetting corruption and theft of public resources.

While calling for support for the new political vehicle, NASA, Odinga highlighted the National Youth Service (NYS) scam amongst other scandals that have hit the headlines in the recent past, promising to ensure those who have stolen public funds are prosecuted should NASA carry the day come August 8, 2017.

Bomet Governor, Isaac Ruto, and Ford Kenya Party leader, Moses Wetangula, criticized the Jubilee government’s development record.

While calling for Ruto to join NASA, Wetangula called for support from the Rift saying that under NASA, the country would be free of corruption, tribalism, public theft; youth unemployment among others which he said has become rampant in the country.

Governor Ruto promised to consult widely on whether his Chama Cha Mashinani (CCM) party should join NASA.

The leaders, who used the chance to woo South Rift voters and by extension Rift Valley region, said that Jubilee has failed to fulfill its promises to Kenyans urging voters to send President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy, William Ruto, packing.

The opposition coalition that was hosted by Governor Ruto saw leaders from different political affiliations attend among them Wiper Party leader, Kalonzo Musyoka, ANC leader, Musalia Mudavadi, KANU Secretary General, Nick Salat, Presidential candidate and UDM party leader Philip Murgor, Mombasa Governor Ali Hassan Joho, and Suna East MP Junet Mohamed among others.
